Some new apps–to me–and perhaps for you!

I am always looking for new/improved/better music education apps. Over the last week, a few have come to my attention.

First, Amy Willis recently taught a week long course on iPads in music education, and she has been posting about that course at mustech.net. Here are the sequence of posts:

  1. iPads in the Elementary General Music Classroom
  2. iPads in the Elementary Music Classroom – Teacher Tools
  3. iPads in the Elementary Music Room – Creating Music, Reading Notes and Rhythms, and Virtual Acoustic Ensembles
  4. iPads in the Elementary Music Room – Creation Apps
  5. iPads in the Elementary Music Room – Notation, Ear Training, Recorder and Keyboard Apps
  6. iPads in the Elementary Music Room – Apps Used by Elementary Music Teachers
  7. iPads in the Elementary Music Room – 16 Great Resources
  8. iPads in the Elementary Music Room – Some of My Favorite Virtual Music Apps
  9. iPads in the Elementary Music Classroom – Guided Access

One of the apps that Amy mentions in the articles is a free app called MetaXylo Plus. This is an Orff app that allows you to remove bars on Orff instruments. I have been looking for such an app for a long time…and it turns out it has been available since September 2013 (there is also a French version). A gigantic thank you to Amy Willis for mentioning this app!

Another app that I was introduced to at my day of sessions for the St. Cloud State University Summer Music Education Institute is a rhythm app (also free) called Woodchuck Rhythm.

Be sure to check Amy's posts for other apps that could be of use to you!
