Q: I'm not hearing any sound, help!
A: Make sure that the mute switch on your device is turned off.
In iOS4.2, the mute switch is the physical switch on the corner of the iPad. In iOS4.3, you can select between orientation lock or mute for the switch on the device. If you've set the iPad for orientation lock on the switch, then the mute is on the far left side of the task bar, double click the home button and then slide the task bar all the way to the left.
Q: Where can I learn more about how to play the instrument?
A: Please visit the following site for more information and online learning materials:
