Singing Fingers (free on the Apple App Store) is one of my favorite iPad apps. It invites whimsical creativity. A few years ago when Gail Lovely (@glovely) put together a panel of folks at ISTE (in Philly, I think) to share favorite iOS apps, Singing Fingers was one of my selections. Today thanks to some video “rabbit hole Googling” inspired by “Tinker, Make and Learn,” I found this super, three minute video interview and demo with Jay Silver (@wakeupsilver) about Singing Fingers. Check it out! I can’t wait to share this with my 4th and 5th grade STEM students next semester when I introduce them to the “musical creations” center of our classroom Maker Studio.
