Best Rhythm Apps

Rhythm Swing

Help the monkey swing through the jungle as you follow along with the note values and tap in time to the beat. But don’t make too many mistakes, the crocodile is hungry! There are different levels for each note and rest value, plus two boss stages.

My favourite feature: I love the video game aspects of this app, and the monkey’s victory dance is definitely worth a mention!

Rhythm Cat

Tap along to the beat as you follow the rhythm notation of each song. As the levels progress different note and rest values are introduced and you’ll need to start using both hands to tap the rhythm.

My favourite feature: there’s a great variety of accompanying songs, including some well-known pieces.
