Tune Train is a free app that lets users compose simple melodies through a fun and unique interface. Students use a train to pick up passengers who each play a different note along a route. Using a finger swipe, users guide the train from one station to the other, moving horizontally across the screen to compose. Passengers/tones are organized vertically at points between the two stations; with lower tones lower on the screen moving to higher tones further up the screen. It’s easy to intuitively compose up and down the lines of passengers as users connect the train from one station to the other. Different themes, accompaniment music options, and an icon that allows users to see the composition written as sheet music add depth and breadth to this app’s already varied applicability.
Tune Train is suitable for Lower Primary and Upper Primary.
