We want children to love classical music as much as we do. To feel the music, derive pleasure from it and to have this wonderful music enrich their entire lives. We also want them to understand the music, to be intellectually stimulated by it. And to gain greater confidence in everything else they study and do. But if we can inspire the passion that we feel for the music in the life and mind of a child. This makes the rest easy!
That's why we design our music games to be both accessible and challenging. We reach for the highest standards in graphics, musical reproduction and gameplay. Yet, we never leave out the fun. Our company is comprised of music lovers and professional composers and musicians. The fact that we are also parents and educators helps us to put together a complete package: music games that teach valuable lessons and build skills. But most of all we make music games that kids love to play.
