Description

 ”Entertaining, intuitive, and required no prior musical knowledge, the Fonofone music app lets children develop their creativity and with it, self-confidence, concentration, and abstract thinking skills. The app features an educational approach that we developed with the additional goal of reinforcing the ability to work collectively” Yves Daoust

The Fonofone music app for iPad is an app of sound creation with which your students will develop their musical imagination, their listening skills, and their concentration. With it, they will appropriate the musical bases, and musicality. The application has been conceived to favor the immediate and intuitive relationship with the sounds and the techniques of manipulation: in a few minutes of exploration, the user discovers and intuitively grasps the action of each tool and its effect on his created sound.

Fonofone is an instrument! By the touch screen, we transform the sound in real time by acting directly on each of the forms that represent each of the application's tools. Imagine and create in a group a musical track record inspired by a formal idea, a scenario (invented or imposed),  a text, a play, an emotion, a video…

Fonofone Maestro: The online teaching guide Fonofone Maestro is an educational resources package with the teaching resources and an assessment curriculum.

Fonofone Maestro help you to structure your teachings through games encouraging understanding, exploratory composition, video illustration, graphic sheet music and more! With the classroom organization tool, the teacher creates, download and upload activities for the group, share it and controls the creative session as the orchestra conductor, as the Maestro.

Sharing community: Fonofone music app is it also a sound creation sharing community between Fonofone members.

COSIMU is a Montreal non-profit organization working for 15 years to developing digital learning tools into sound creation. We offer intuitive and playful environments stimulating imagination and creativity.
