Our Daily App Giveaway – Mozart – iPhone App

Share

Welcome once again to our Daily App Giveaway section of theappwhisperer.com. We value our readers so much we want to share our love of apps with you. That’s why we have created this new section as each day we will be giving away free apps.

Today we have Mozart apps to giveaway – each worth $9.99/£5.99. Mozart will teach you how to read music within a game – fun – the best way to learn. Once the game is started via the toolbar notes begin streaming from the right side of the screen. These notes have to be identified in the order of their appearance with the current input instrument (i.e. piano).

In addition to regular notes there is an array of game characters including bonus notes, flyers, jumpers, bombs, and many more. Once a note gets too close to the clef on the left side of the screen it disappears in a cloud of vapor and the player loses one life point. For each note named in time the player receives one or more points.

The further the game progresses the more notes will appear and their range will widen to potentially include many ledger lines above and below the staff as well as accidentals. Once a player has depleted all of his or her lives the game is over and he or she may receive a high score.

There are two basic instruments – letters (c, d, e) and solfége (do, re, mi) and four advanced instruments – bass, guitar, mandolin and piano. Mozart can be played in the four most common clefs – alto, bass, tenor and treble. These can be used in all 12 major and minor key signatures. Left-handed players may want to have the stringed instruments display invertedly with the left-handed option. In Training Mode an instrument’s position can be pre-defined before starting a new game. Positions remain static throughout the game in Training Mode and an additional option exists to slow down note streaming.

Mozart makes the task of learning how to read music enjoyable by immersing the student in a well-designed and challenging game. The didactic advantage to this approach is quite considerable for one because the time spent playing a game is not perceived as "study time" by the player. On top of that, however, the game forces players to identify notes very quickly as the animation progresses, a note changes position or the key signature changes in mid-flight. In version 2.0 the average time a player spends completing a game has more than doubled. At the same time the inclusion of accidentals and instrument positioning has broadened the spectrum of what is learned in the game. Anyone involved in learning or teaching an instrument or music in general will find Mozart to be of great value and most importantly – great fun.
