 Back to: 3-5 years

With ThinkFun Compose Yourself set, you don't have to know how to write music or even own an instrument to be a world-class composer.

Created by the ever-famous composer and cellist, Maestro Philip Sheppard, Compose Yourself teaches children as young as six to play with music.

To create your own melody, arrange cards in a visual pattern. Then enter the codes with our music making software at, and hear your piece played by a full symphony orchestra at Abbey Roads Studios.

Then flip, rotate, rearrange and even add more cards to create your very own masterpiece. You can also download the musical composition into a mp3 format, print it out as sheet music or share on social media!

With over 200 million musical compositions and endless learning opportunities, Compose Yourself will help ignite a love of music.


Created by world-famous composer, cellist, and advocate for music education Philip Sheppard as a way to inspire curiosity and interest in music, Compose Yourself offers a set of musical “building bricks” that encourage kids to play with music just as they would a construction kit.

By themselves, the cards have a novelty and a certain “neat” factor that will attract most kids (who are already somewhat attuned to music). However, the addition of the website and the ability to have your piece performed back to you by a full orchestra turn this product into something really special.

As an unparalleled introduction to basic music theory and notation, Compose Yourself absolutely belongs in every music teacher’s toolkit. But it also merits a place in almost any household with children. For this price point, you simply can’t go wrong.
