Learning music has proven to be an excellent way to teach young children how to exercise their brains. That’s because music is aesthetically pleasing and mathematically based so even if your child just learns the basics, it’s better than not learning any type of music at all.

To help children learn music, there’s a video game called Rhythm Cat available for the iPhone and iPad. By playing this game using a cartoon cat as a mentor, children can quickly pick up the basics of rhythm while having fun at the same time. Now if only real cats could be so useful and entertaining.
