  • Joey says:

    Much like many kids’ music programs, Instruments for Kids has very few features. Young musicians are limited to playing notes and little else. It does provide variety in the number of instruments they can play. Players can choose between four instruments (drums, lyre/harp, keyboard, and xylophone).

    This game is best played on a touchscreen. There, young musicians can move through the keys with ease and tap on several notes at once.
