  1. Very interesting blog. Alot of blogs I see these days don’t really provide anything that I’m interested in, but I’m most definately interested in this one.

  2. GarageBand is generally for older lads but kids enjoy the app too. It’s really fun to play. Similarly Toca Band is also another great app. Great recommendations loved the list.

  3. Josh (my kid) has been using Tap a tune and Book Creator app for long. I will surely recommend the rest of them. Thanks for sharing.
