Little Composers

Little Composers

Our mission it to turn moms into music teachers and children into famous little composers.

The app-based "Creative Children Compose Music" method originates in Austria and is specifically designed to teach children between the ages of 3 - 8 how to compose and play their own music from the moment they start.
If your child has an ear for music then make time to play. In 10 years from now, you will be glad you did.

Let's begin

Visual learners ages 3 and up
If your child is still at the pre reading stage then begin with NOAH which uses symbols instead of notes.
You can ether load the app and let your child play or work trough 10 starter lessons.
Prerequisites: None

As a radio announcer, it is very important for me to have my daughter involved in the world of music. I just want music to mean as much to her as it does to me. So it made sense to start her in it as soon as possible. I found Little Composers and instantly knew it was for us! It really is brilliant and easy to follow along. I highly recommend it for you and your “little composer.” – Trish W.

After NOAH
Once your child outgrows NOAH, you can continue composing and learning how to play music with the prePiano Keyboard app.

If your child enjoyed composing and playing the short melodies with NOAH then it will LOVE the prePiano Keyboard which features color-coded piano keys. This app doubles the length of a melody from two to four bars and includes our unique "Erase and Replace" feature which allows for changes (edits) after a composition has been finished.

The help our little composers with making the most of this amazing app, we have created online classes that reward those who complete the assignments with a beautiful music certificate from the Little Composers School of Music & Composition.
The classes are free but registration and enrollment is required in order to take the quizzes and earn the certificate. Depending on a students age, parental guidance is recommended.

The final learning stage of composing is accomplished with the Little Composers Piano, our flagship app.
The Little Composers Piano again doubles the melody length and in addition of sophisticated editing features, the app can store multiple compositions and convert each composition into a real music score.

Did you try the Free starter lessons yet?

Ideally and for the best possible progress, you should spend five days per week composing music together. The length of those "sessions" should take on a natural flow and never be forced.
