Not only do they have some of the weirdest and coolest names around, but they make cool sounds  

And they’re free because of all this COVID-19 sequestration stuff. The thought is that this is a good time for kids to try something new and creative. Get them hooked and maybe they (or their parents) will buy some of the in-app add-ons. 

I may actually put them on Nathan’s iPad and see what he comes up with. Better than him sitting there staring at YouTube.

Will you give them a shot? Please share your music!

I grabbed both of the apps and will have to have fun playing around and seeing what musical talent I might have.


Anything has to be better than what I don’t have.
