About

Color, Structured Music Patterns, Practice, Learn, Compose
Color, Structured Music Patterns, Practice, Learn, Compose

Plinkout is an online/mobile application which uses sight, sound, color, and motion graphics to teach anyone the core cognitive ideas of music. 

We want to make a free version of Plinkout for School Children and you can help us make that a reality.

Plinkout can be used by children in school, advanced adults, and any music lover at any level,  anywhere, anytime.  

Singing and practicing the musical patterns in Plinkout will teach the end user how to play an instrument, how to read music, how to understand music theory, and eventually, how to compose.

Please come join the Plinkout community to help us provide free music education software for school children. 

Our commitment is to always provide a free educational version. We also intend to create advanced subscription based learning interfaces for intermediate and professional users which will continue to grow and sustain the free educational version and to support the community. Music brings joy and is an essential part of cultural life for everyone, regardless of background or nationality. Help us build a global community.
