My son bought an app on his iPod touch named RhythminReach. It was at the request of his piano teacher. He is entering his third month of lessons and I can't get him to put this one down. It's so much better than him playing another mindless game. He plays the Rhythms on the screen and it actually has translated to his learning, SO MUCH MORE than Guitar hero!!!

Here's the link for anyone interested.

Personally, I don't find these various aids necessary, but perhaps some other teachers do. Variety, the spice of life.

It was only released 6 days ago yet a teacher has already heard of it, downloaded it, tested it and is recommending it to his/her students?

And this particular student is already reaping the benefits after just a few days?

And at the same time a brand new user called John (the same first same as the seller of the app) joins a Piano Forum and their first post is to tell us all about this brand new app? Of which there are loads and loads of others to choose from including freebies?

And all in just 6 days?

Forgive me but something seems just a tad fishy to me...

We seem to get these about every 6 months, more or less.
