iPad Apps for Chorus & Music?
Date: March 5, 2012
I got the wonderful news last week that I'm receiving 15 iPads for my classroom for next year! I had applied for them to use for a General Music Exploratory where we'll be using Garage Band to study chord progressions & computer based music and a whole bunch else...
HOWEVER, we are also adding for the first time next year chorus as a curricular class, and I want to use them in there, as well. I'm looking for suggestions for Apps that can be used in chorus. I'm pretty familiar (at least in idea) with the apps like ForScore that let you use the iPad to view music, but I'm really looking forward to using them to help teach note reading, theory, etc. I'll also use them, in conjunction with Sibelius & Scorch, to have students work on parts in small groups.
So, what apps have you encountered that you could see using, or have used, to teach music - especially reading? What I'd really like is some web app or iPad app that allows students to log in to their account, and do assessments while I'm working with another section, then have the results reported to me. From what I've found, though, such a thing isn't out there?
Any suggestions would be great!
