This game awakens the inner Mozart in every child. Kids start out by selecting four cards — all with four potential tunes on them — and placing them in a visually-appealing order. Next, they visit the Compose Yourself website, where they created an account and then enter the codes from the cards they selected. Children will then be able to hear and alter the melody they created, and even make it up to 16 cards long. Once a tune is finished, kids can share their music with others by downloading an Mp3 or printing out sheet music to play on their own instruments.
