Skoog Makes Music Accessible To Everyone
on 27 September 2016
I had the fabulous opportunity to review this Skoog, and as a parent of a special needs child, it's a product that would be amazing in schools and clubs for all children, and out of this world for those who struggle with sensory issues.
There are times we all want to play along to some great music, but we're not all talented enough, or able to join in. With the Skoog, it's simply a case of downloading the Skoog app, a companion app like Garageband, and then pairing the Skoog with the iPad. Then anyone can press the very soft buttons to make music as they go. It's also a great learning tool.
I do have a special needs child, and all he needs to do when his favourite songs are on, is press the cube anywhere, even on the surround, to feel like he's part of the music. I don't think I've ever seen any other gadget where this is actually done so simply, or so well. My mother has dementia, and seems to enjoy joining in for a while. I think we sometimes forget that our elders enjoy music too, especially ones who might have played an instrument at one point in their lives, and no longer can.
I'm looking forward to my young nephews coming round, as I suspect it'll entertain them for hours on end with Garageband to help.
