Mussila Music School is an award-winning music learning app developed by Mussila ehf for iOS and Android devices. Children can explore the world of music on their own and gain knowledge without continuous external help.
Crafted by musical experts and educators, the app has three learning paths: Learn, Play, and Create.
On the Learn Path, children progress through the fundamentals of music theory, such as identifying notes and tempos and reading sheet music. They develop a sense of rhythm and timing with recognizable songs and identify different instruments by sound through games such as Memory.
The Play Path helps children learn to play the piano. They can do so on their mobile device or use a keyboard through the app. Initially they play along to familiar children’s songs, such as “Happy Birthday” and “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.” Then they graduate to more advanced pieces from Swan Lake and The Magic Flute and eventually tackle the masters such as Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart. No music experience is necessary.
On the Create Path, “Music Machine” invites children to explore different sounds and colors and create their own songs. “Mussila DJ” encourages players to create their own musical soundscape, as well as remix existing songs. In the independent arcade game Mussila Planets, children follow the rhythm of songs and practice their ear for music on an adventurous journey between exotic planets and all the way down from space into the deep and mysterious sea.
