Mazaam has heeded the call of the Quebec government by offering its edutainment and music app for free to the new “Open School” initiative, available since March 30. This learning hub, conceived by the Ministère de l’Éducation du Québec, offers resources to learn, create, have fun and be physically active, and is intended for parents who wish to actively contribute to their child’s learning during a time when schools are closed.
Extension of the period during which the Mazaam application is offered for free, as it proves to be very successful in many countries with parents during confinement
In the current context, where many parents of young children between 4 and 6 years old must reconcile working from home and taking care of their children, Mazaam wishes to help alleviate this challenge by extending the period of full and free access to its mobile app on iOS (and at a price of CA$0.99 on Android, the regular price is CA$6.99) until June 30, 2020.
“We are able to see that it is not only the parents in Quebec who download the Mazaam application. There is a sharp increase of downloads of the application from other Canadian provinces, in the United States and in France, where parents are seeking content with a high educational value for their young children” says François Mario Labbé, President and CEO of Mazaam Interactive Inc.

The mission of Mazaam: initiate young children to the benefits of music
The Mazaam app is a suite of games designed to hone auditory perception, improve concentration, logical reasoning and abstract thought, and stimulate auditory memory. The set of actions within the app aims to stimulate children’s interest in music while supporting their development and children will have fun playing those games.
The Mazaam app, developed by Analekta, the foremost classical music label in Canada, is based on the research and the work of the Canada Research Chair in Music and Learning, spearheaded by professor Jonathan Bolduc. “On the educational level, nothing was left to chance” Professor Bolduc stated. “The application supports preschoolers’ musical development through age‑appropriate challenges”.
“Mazaam contains only authentic recordings— there’s absolutely no synthetic music—, making it a complete and beneficial musical experience, and ideal for introducing children to music. Mazaam is a lifelong gift” said the internationally acclaimed violinist Angèle Dubeau, spokesperson for the project.
