My Favorite Apps – Piano Monkey

My students love new ways to use the iPad in our sessions. I like finding ways to keep them engaged while learning new things. That’s why I so many educational apps. One of the apps I have been using recently in Piano Monkey!

Piano Monkey tests students’ knowledge of notes on both treble clef and bass clef, giving them three options to choose from.

If you select the correct note, the note will be played and the monkey will smile, giving you the opportunity to move on to the next note.
