“It’s amazing how kids learn hugely dextrous tasks and info processing when they’re gaming.  I think something similar can be set up to develop musical skills (e.g. rhythm and note-reading), that kids can practice in a digital world before applying to their instrumental learning in the real world (e.g. angry birds – tapping rhythms).  this is something I eventually want to develop, monitor and research.”
