Inversion Invasion is an iPad app that teaches students about keyboard chords in an arcade-style game. To “defend” various scenes like city centers students have to play the correct notes and chords while “aliens” “invade.” The app comes from Jambots who produces other music education apps like Lo-Fi Folk Arranger and Pedal to the Steel.
The video below provides a demonstration of Inversion Invasion.
Applications for Education
Music educators looking for an engaging way for students to practice chords when they don’t have access to pianos or keyboards, Inversion Invasion could be a helpful app.
