Tips for Parents:
………………………….

The following suggested steps ensure the optimal learning experience from Hello Kitty Music:
1.First let your child listen to the song and become familiar with it
2.Then your child can practice the song in slower notes mode. Here the metronome is used – an essential tool to help keep rhythm while practicing music
3.Having mastered the song in slow mode, your child is ready to practice again in fast notes mode
4.Listen to playback with the singing voice. Here the singing voice facilitates learning and instills the language of music in a natural and easy way, as your child practices the song
5.Finally, practice using the microphone icon – allowing your child to sing the song for themself. The microphone mode is a powerful learning tool in internalizing the language of music
6.When playing with 4 fingers or more, it's best to turn off the Multitasking Gestures feature on your iPad's settings.
7.Note: The originally composed melody: “On the Lines” was specially written to help children distinguish notes by their sound and location on the musical staff. This unique song is based on only five notes to follow the structure of the musical staff and help the child navigate this musical tool.
8.The home screen is interactive! Try and enjoy...
