Are Your Favorite Apps Going Away? PART 2

This is a “part 2” to the original post, Are Your Favorite Apps Going Away? This last week I have been contacting app publishers/developers like crazy hoping to find out if they have any plans on updating their 32-bit app to 64-bit so it will work on iOS11. I thought I would share who I have heard from and what I have found out. Keep in mind, I have not heard back from everyone by my deadline, so I will come back to this post and update it as I receive more responses.   Audio Ninja- Sad news about Audio […]

Are Your Favorite Apps Going Away?

This week I’ve been in mourning because I have over 200 apps on my iPad that will no longer work when I update to iOS 11.  That is crazy!!! I thought I would share the list of my personal music apps that won’t work on iOS 11. I would say that I probably use about 1/3 to 1/2 of these apps (yes I’m an app-a-holic) but boy some of them are painful to see!

Mistakes CAN be a GOOD thing!

The other day I had a student come in for her lessons a little frustrated because the piece that she was learning did not sound at all like it did when I had played it. Something was clearly wrong but she could not figure out what to do. She said to me, “I even wrote in all the notes to make sure I was doing it correctly.” It didn’t take me long to see that she had written the treble notes for the bass clef. As she was playing her bass…. I mean treble notes in the bass clef alone, […]

Feature Friday: Music Instruments Poke Cards

Today’s Feature Friday is a BRAND NEW set of the popular Poke Cards! The music instrument set includes 36 different instruments divided into Brass, Keyboard, Percussion, String, and Woodwind families.
