Helping Kids Realize Music

So you’ve got a bunch of kids and you want to teach them all about music theory. What do you do? And not only that, what do you do if you want to keep materials and cost to minimum? This is a system by designer Loris Bottello that allows children to interact directly with the notes. Kids pull the sides of the object to set the length of the sounds right there in real time. This system is totally cool, working with kids to recognize both duration and pitch.

    Nice concept! Give kids the freedom and ease to create and they will. But this solution is way to bulky and simplistic for making true compositions. What is the use of a tangible music interface if it does not give the user the freedom to go beyond making nursery rhymes? An inspiring concept nonetheless.
