Now I have only LR Lite, but like to buy all of your products which includes Little Reader, Little Math, and Little Musician. The funny thing is I have not  much money and want to buy them also cheap big grin.

So my question: Could you tell what the (planned) incentives are for buying all three products together (if L Musician comes out)? Will I able to buy Little Musician cheaper with certain amount of points? - I am thinking of wether waiting for Little Musician to buy all three together or buying your first two products with 15% discount immediately.

Just wondering, if Little Musician still in works, and if it is, will it be coming our way soon?

I am  curious, because my husband is planning to prepare guitar notes, cords mini course for our little one, because she is really interested in music since birth, and follows my husbands hands with her eyes every time he plays guitar, no matter how long  smile

So we want to introduce these to her pretty soon, since she is so mesmerised by music. But if Little Musician will be coming soon, we will wait with making our own materials. Cant wait to see it being released!

Yes, I'm sure there will be bundle discounts, but nothing finalized yet.

Just wondering, if Little Musician still in works, and if it is, will it be coming our way soon?

Will be focusing on LMs as soon as we finish launching the new system for LR and LMt!  Hopefully beta by Aug/Sept!

Sorry for the ignorance. But I would like to know whether a parent with almost zero knowledge in music can use Little Musician to teach the baby?  unsure

LITTLE MUSICIAN

Little Musician will teach a child:



Sing Along - This is essentially a baby karaoke, letting them sing along to nursery rhymes.  The best part is, this will also really help a child learn to read too!

......!

If you have any suggestions as to what we can include, please let us know!

KL

Thank you for working on it! Great great idea.

Would it be possible to use the songs of our choice in a "baby karaoke" style, like you mentioned about nursery rhymes? For example to have a possibility to import our MP3 file of the song, and then to type in words line by line in a LM editor of sorts, which would make it easy to synchronize them with the music? What about option of having a recorder incorporated so that parents who are musicians themselves can possibly record a song for a child with their own voice and make it in a "baby karaoke" style? Personalization is so important, so it will be great to have this option!


Or a possibility to enter a simple sequence of notes ( melody) and play it back with the note that plays at the moment being highlighted or followed by an arrow.  (Entering can be done either by a mouse on the “virtual keyboard” in the program; or through the assigned keys on the PC keyboard, or trough plugging in the actual keyboard to computer.. I am not sure which would be the easiest to incorporate … just ideas)

Would it be possible to have notes and combination of notes played by various musical instruments? (EG, guitar, violin, piano, chello, trumpet, etc.), this way it will be possible to: introduce child to different musical instruments, teach musical recognition, keep lessons and learning individual notes fun and interesting, since there will be variety of sounds for the same note. Also it will possibly work to have a preset option, where we can chose combinations of notes to play, which musical instruments we would like to use for that, etc. Similar how in Little Math we have presets with the voice reading numbers in different languages, but then we can use those pre-sets in indefinite number of ways – equations, progression of numbers, random, etc. This way there will be lots of possibilities for using it.

It will be nice also to include photos of different musical instruments, possibly with short bits of information about them

Will be great to have a diagram of a piano/guitar with the notes, showing how notes relate to the piano keyboard/guitar… Possibility of printing out those diagrams to post on the walls or use as flashcards possibly can be a useful option

When the notes are introduced, it will be nice to have an option to show the child  where these notes are located on the piano keyboard/guitar ( etc.) and how they sound (possibly picture or animation), how they are played in full notes, half notes and quarter notes.

Basic scales and chords progressions, it will be nice to have an option in pre-sets to highlight the notes that child is learning or learned so far, while showing scale or chord, or chord progression, so  they see it, hear it and see how the notes they just learned or are learning  fit into certain scale….

Another things that go more along with learning to read and recognize music and beginning playing

Symbols for a whole note, half note, quarter note, and an eighth note; introducing a measure and a bar line; the staff and grand staff symbols; the sharp, flat, and natural symbols, how these symbols affect the notes and keys that are played; the Treble or G Clef and the Bass or F Clef, showing which hand to use to play which notes on a keyboard; rests, showing where notes are not played; concept of a beam to tie notes together; key signature, which shows you what keys are played as a sharp or a flat; time signatures, which shows the child how many beats are in a measure, and what note is equal to one beat; etc…

These are just some ideas... What do you think?

Absolutely.  You just need to know how to install it and press PLAY. smile

Skylark - thanks for all those suggestions.  We'd rather not say too much about it now, but most of what you mentioned will be features in the program.

Thanks KL, thats great news for me!  smile

I am planning to accumulate as many points from now on to get good discounts on it.

Who would be selected for beta testing? Any criteria for that?

Questers.

Not really, but just 'ASAP'...  More resources will be going to finishing up Little Musician probably next month, so hopefully can get beta out 2-3 months after that.
