Learn guitar and sing with your whole family! For parents and older children, the software features simple lessons that make it fun and easy to play songs on guitar right away. For pre-schoolers, toddlers and infants, the software includes entertaining teaching segments with our playful puppet 'Capo' who helps the instructor introduce musical concepts then dances and sings along with the music, encouraging younger children to do the same. Preschoolers develop an understanding and appreciation of musical elements including rhythm, tempo and pattern while parents and caregivers play along and join the fun. The software also includes printable colouring book featuring musical themes from the featured songs.
Each popular song featured on Kids and Family Music Lessons for the Mac includes a full GarageBand project file, complete with instrumental and vocal tracks. Using GarageBand’s simple controls, families can remix the featured songs, change or add vocals or instruments and record their own performances. Users can share their performances using iTunes, or easily create a podcast using iWeb.
All videos can be exported to iTunes and the video iPod. Families can enjoy iPlayMusic videos any time, anywhere. Finally, Play Music Together includes a bonus TV-DVD that includes all the featured videos - so you can enjoy Play Music together in your living room or car.
Appropriate for users of all ages, iPlayMusic’s Play Music Together
gives users easy control of their learning experience. If a particular song or technique presents a challenge, slow motion and looping features allow users to play or sing along at their own pace while maintaining the proper pitch. Finding the right lesson, topic or song quickly makes practice easy with Spotlight search.
