New Ed-Tech Company Releases Creative App for Kids
Musical Paint is an iPad app that gives children the power to paint music.
Building Blocks Media founders Trevor LeVieux and Liz Griffiths are passionate about promoting the arts in education. Trevor says, “Music has had such a positive impact on my life, and I wanted to share that with my son’s generation. I spent a lot of time perfecting the sound of the paint in this app. Musical Paint gives kids the power to make visual art that sounds beautiful.”
“We understand that children are influenced by media, and we want to deliver a positive learning experience,”
As part of the app development process, Trevor and Liz tested Musical Paint with children to make sure it was engaging and developmentally appropriate. Liz says, “Kids aren’t going to learn if they aren’t engaged. They also won’t learn if they can’t navigate the app easily. We worked hard to get those things right.”
Trevor is a musician and software engineer. He is also the father of a 3 year-old boy. Liz is an early childhood educator who has consulted on children’s media projects for PBS kids, Disney Jr., and Nick Jr.
Musical Paint is currently available on the App Store for iPad iOS 6 and higher. The team is working on a universal update that will make the app available for additional iOS devices next month.
