Concertino is an interactive mat with a supplementary tablet application that uses movement to create musical compositions.
Who is it for
The main audience for Concertino is elementary-aged children who are learning how to read notes and rhythms.
In response to interviews with music teachers, a recurring teaching tool was movement. While Concertino is not meant to teach the most technical music reading and writing skills, it is more so a tool that explores collaborative music making.
