Grade Recommendation: K - 3rd
Specific Skill: Xylophone playing
For iPad, iPod, or Both: Both
This is one of the simplest apps you'll find. However, it's title says it all - this xylophone is awesome! Notes C to C are each represented by a different-colored (and sized) bar on the xylophone. Students use their fingers to operate the mallets.
The app doesn't come with an option to change the range of the xylophone; what you initially see is what you'll always get. Also, I'm not a music teacher; so I can't comment on the quality of sound this xylophone makes. But it's a fun app and perhaps can be used by a music teacher at the early elementary level to practice basic xylophone skills with students.
