Nin-Genius is on Sale! Anyone who teaches Band/Orchestra/Piano should own this app!

NinGenius Main Screen.pngI can not say enough about how amazing this app is in the classroom! I have all my students using this app to show growth and understanding of fingerings on their instruments as well as note names! There is even a rhythm mode now! I wasn’t so sure about the usefulness of the rhythm mode but after I tried testing myself I soon came to realize that even my high school kids needed to be using this!

Now – before we get too far in I do feel I need to warn you that there are three versions of the app.

NinGenius ClassNin-Genius Music: Class Games – $7.99 currently (and worth every cent of the full price)

NinGenius Music StudioNin-Genius Music: Studio Games – $4.99 (For a trumpet teacher who only needs to test trumpets for instance. Studio Games version now allows 3 instruments upon startup, with additional instruments available for $0.99)

NinGenius 4 Kids.pngNin-Genius Music: Games 4 Kids – $0.99 – This is what your students would buy.

As the demands on us teachers grow to collect data these apps are in-despinsible! The Instructor mode in this app allows me to go in, view my students scores, look at their history and even better email myself a spreadsheet of that information!

As for the students? They do not look at this as taking a test – it is a game for them! They love playing it and seeing how fast they can progress through all the different levels of belts. Plus, with three iPads being passed around the room I can make it through an entire class of testing in less than 50 minutes. If you have ever tried testing in a band room with 50 students sitting there you instantly know how painful it can get when one kid is playing a test and 49 others are sitting there waiting! Using Nin-Genius means every kid is either testing or rehearsing. Instant win!

There are 18 instruments provided in Nin-Genius. Plus each person can choose to test on note names, fingerings and now even rhythms.

If you are a music teacher and do NOT own this game now is the time to act!

  1. Thanks for the fantastic, informative review! I wanted to add that the Studio Games version now allows 3 instruments upon startup, with additional instruments available for $0.99. I also love using the app in my band and orchestra classes. Easy and powerful!
