An Interactive Mobile Application for Learning Music Effectively
This paper introduces a mobile application that allows users learn music in a funny and effective way so as to arouse students’ interests towards music, and provide a convenient means to students’ learning and playing music through the mobile devices. The mobile application enables users to know their learning progress. Students can learn music effectively through game-based quizzes and exercises. The mobile application provides an elementary level e-learning platform for music learners. It serves as a stepping stone for them to further develop their interests in this field. The application is divided into three parts: fundamental musical theory, educational games, and practical use of musical instruments. The musical activities includes introducing different musical instruments, reading scores, listening to different notes, writing and recognizing treble clef, calculating the tempo of a song and playing notes from a keyboard with the sounds of different instruments.
