How to use tabDo!

You can choose between different modes.

In vertical mode the notation has been left out. Depending on the degree of difficulty chosen, the children have a particular set of tonal resources at their disposal. The tonic can be any note desired.

Horizontal mode shows the tonal space within the sheet music. Here also the tonic, tonal resources, and timbre can be regulated through the settings.

Begin by using the “Guidonian Hand”, which helps the student localize the sounds. This is recommended for grades 1 and 2.

The available notes with which the students are working on their tasks can be determined and gradually increased in the settings: From 4 notes diatonically (level 1) up to 7 notes or the chromatic scale (levels 6 and 7).

For classroom music instruction the desired instrument can be determined for every device by means of the proper settings.

The concept behind tabDo!

With tablets you can make tabDo! quickly available to your class and, with its melodies and songs, conveniently train your students’ basic music skills.

The app helps them develop their inner sound associations in a perfectly natural way: Students actively and intuitively discover the world of sound, play back the melodies, modify and transform them, and invent their own tonal sequences.

The methods developed for tabDo! help students develop an inner feeling for music notes and their relationships, from solmization to reading sheet music, and back again.
