​"I am studying your book 'Developing Musical Intuitions' and felt compelled to write and thank you for such an incredible work of art. Every page encourages creativity. I bought your iPad app Tuneblocks and can see how beautifully your text and the App work together to help students comprehend musical structure and so much more – you’re providing opportunities for them to be equipped with the skills they need to understand the nature of music to be able to then make their own music.” - Andrea Calilhanna, Australia

A Must Have   
This is a great app for kids to explore how music works and to eventually create new tunes. At first it's a musical puzzle game that will keep kids entertained for hours. With further exploration they can go inside the blocks, change them and create new music. - App Store by grg07
