Perfect For: Beginners to singing.
What is it? SingTrue claims to be able to teach anybody to sing in perfect tune, and features over 30 interactive exercises that not only help improve your skills but also aim to make you more confident in your singing. The App uses your device’s microphone to track your voice and provide personalised feedback on how you can improve.
Why do we love it? The great thing about SingTrue is its open approach to engaging everyone in singing, no matter how good or bad you think you are. It is encouraging throughout the development process and can still be useful if just used for a few minutes a day.
Perfect For: Ages 3-11.
What is it? A simple app to help children engage in music-making, Monkey Drum lets you interact with jungle animals who will repeat back drum beats and rhythms that you create.
Why do we love it? The interactive elements are fantastic for engaging young people. You can tap the animal and their environment to garner different reactions from them, and can even feed them bananas to change their mood!
Fugue Machine (£9.99 on iOS)
Perfect For: Ages 12+.
What is it? Fugue Machine is the world’s first multi-playhead piano roll, taking inspiration from classical composers from Baroque. Create a musical sequence and play it back with up to four playheads at once — each at various speeds, directions, and pitches.
Why do we love it? It’s extremely intuitive and creative, if a little scary at first glance! The combination of different playheads allows for unexpectedly complex creations to be made relatively quickly, making it a fantastic resource for anyone looking for a sequencer.
