Skoog 2.0 Assistive Music Technology

$353.03

Skoog Music is a tactile musical instrument that is truly unique in its level of accessibility. Tap it, twist it or squeeze, this new music accessory for iPad opens up a world of musicplay no matter what your skills, abilities or musical talents. It’s simple, intuitive, and keeps kids and adults engaged—while giving them the confidence to express themselves.

For many people with disabilities and mobility challenges one of the greatest barriers to making music is the dexterity required to play a more traditional musical instrument. Skoog removes that barrier. Now anyone unable to play traditional instruments can join a band and take part in a range of music-making activities. You can jam with your favourite tracks instantly! The free Skoog App works with GarageBand or your iTunes library or music streaming service and automatically tunes your Skoog so you can play along with the music you love. Just choose a song and get playing. Creative and fun, with Skoog you play to learn: that’s what musicplay is all about.

It’s not just sensitive to how hard the Skoog is being touched, but where and how it is being touched, transforming the things you do into meaningful and expressive sounds. Adjustable sensitivity means that you can play Skoog intuitively with any part of your body: hands, elbows, knees or head.

Used together, Skoog and iPad expand the potential of music therapy for young children with cerebral palsy, autism, Down’s Syndrome and other developmental delays by offering hands-on opportunities to create and control sound expressively. Skoog’s sensory-friendly tactile nature helps greatly in developing new skills and promoting physical interaction with technology.

Skoog’s universal design enables fun, accessible, expressive music-making for children, parents, teachers, families and the elderly, including those with disabilities within just a few minutes of it being taken out the box. Skoog will change the way you enjoy, create and learn music. Simply touch to play.

Skoog is lightweight and portable, making it easy to set up and use. It connects to your iPad via Bluetooth LE or to your Mac via USB and comes with its own free app (available from the App Store). Or you can use it as a controller for other MIDI-compatible music apps.
