“As a former teacher, I introduced my grandson to the app but my granddaughter is not old enough to play it yet! It was a great success, I much appreciated the pedagogical, psychological work that you have accomplished while looking to minimise the time children spend in front of screens. Thanks again for the quality of the Mazaam app which values the benefits associated with music. ”

Music Box - Squirrels
Simple game with your child. As a complement to the application, you might listen to great works of classical music to help your child better understand the concept of low and high pitches.
J.S. Bach’s Toccata in D Minor presents the same theme in the high register and then in the low register.
This module’s activities engage children’s attention. They help children hone their perception of sounds and improve auditory memory. Your child may also develop complementary skills that will be useful when they are learning to read. For example, to identify the sounds that make up words (phonemes), children must demonstrate fine-grained auditory discrimination.
Your child has fun placing musical excerpts into two groups according to whether they are low-pitched or high-pitched.
From among all the excerpts presented, your child has fun identifying those which are low-pitched or high-pitched.
Your child has fun finding the intruder. In this image, one musical excerpt is not in the same pitch range as the other two.
Music Box - Chameleons
Simple game with your child. To enrich the experience with your child, listen to the “Badinerie” from J.S. Bach’s:
Orchestral Suite in A Minor
Being able to distinguish, associate, identify, detect, and reproduce sounds based on their duration can be beneficial starting in early childhood. These types of activities give children skills that are useful when they start learning to separate words into syllables. For example, when a child taps out the syllables of the word “umbrella” in their hand, they must produce three sounds corresponding to the sounds /um/, /brel/, and /la/.
Your child has fun placing musical excerpts into two groups depending on whether they are slow or fast.

Music Box - Lynx
Simple game with your child. To discover more about contrasting dynamics (loud/soft), listen to the famous “Ode to Joy” theme from Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with your child.
“Ode to Joy”
Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9
By distinguishing, associating, identifying, and detecting sounds according to their intensity, children use various listening strategies to grasp auditory contrasts. For example, they may sing their favourite lullaby with a soft voice or use a loud voice to recite a lively nursery rhyme. By pronouncing some parts of words more loudly than others, they are spontaneously accenting syllables. This is a fun way for them to realize how words are composed, identifying syllables that are at the beginning, middle, or end of a word.

Music Box - Eagles
Simple game with your child. With your child, listen to two versions of the famous piece based on Roma themes called Zigeunerweisen,
Played on the flute
Played on the violin
Or listen to Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition,
in the original version for piano
and in an arrangement for wind quintet
As children play with recognizing instrument sounds, they must demonstrate analytical skills and adapt to change and novelty. This type of activity also helps them in learning contexts. For example, to recognize whether two words end with the same sound (rhyme), a child must demonstrate fine-grained timbral discrimination. Thus, by introducing your child to timbre, this module also targets the development of complementary skills.
Your child has fun placing musical excerpts into two groups depending on whether they are produced by the wind family or the string family.
From among all the excerpts presented, your child has fun identifying those that feature the wind family or the string family.

Music Box - Sea Lions
Simple game with your child. In addition to the games in the application, take a moment to listen to The Unanswered Question by Charles Ives.
The Unanswered Question
by Charles Ives
The activities in this module engage the sense of musical appreciation. By introducing children to less familiar musical works, the module will broaden their musical world and may help them adapt to novelty. Initiating children to the notion of consonance and dissonance may also give them a better awareness of difference and its many facets in our society.
