    Needs few minor improvements. Can you please let us know how to change the notation language from English to Telugu. We tried, it's not happening.

    Downloaded on independence day, and sang Jana Gana Mana with app's guidance. 5 stars for such a great app, with a fervent hope that it will grow through regular updates containing more lessons and songs. Recommended for all. Great job, dev.
