Noteput / Musical learning system

Noteput
Noteput

Noteput is a interactive learning system with tangible notes, that combines all three senses of hearing, sight and touch to make learning the classical notation for children more easy and fun. All musical symbols exist as single, differently weighted wood elements: Long note values are heavier than short ones. As soon as a note is placed on the staves, the respective sound is heard. If several notes are on the table, one can hit the play button and listen to the notes in relation to each other with rhythm and tempo. The table is a working prototype. This setup could be a magnetic board in a classroom or a flexible carpet in a children‘s room.
