Tech Tuesday: Note Rush App

It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed an app and I’m really excited to be sharing this review with you today. Note Rush is a note reading app that hears your instrument. With 3 themes to choose from (and more in the works!), it is super easy to use and fun! I wanted to do a video review for the first time. Be sure to watch to the end where you can see a student of mine playing the app and what happens after he tries all 3 themes. Note Rush App Review Note Rush is a motivating app that engages […]

Tech Tuesday: Student Proofing Your iPad

  While I would like to think that my students will do just as they are told and follow all the iPad Rules, there are extra precautions teachers can take to make sure students stay on task when they are using the iPad at lessons.

(This is great if you have a studio or classroom that teachers […]

Tech Tuesday: BobClass iPad app

(Side note: I have to start off this review by thanking the creators of BobClass for being so patient. They had contacted me to review their app last August. I’ve been backlogged on reviews and was hoping to get it done over the holidays, but it didn’t happen. So now I am happy to say here it is!) It’s always nice to have different options out there and this app is a great option for teachers when it comes to a studio management app. Available for the iPad, BobClass has a clean look and layout that makes it easy to […]

So the subject of music apps have come up on the online message boards recently and I thought I had most music apps that were out there.  But then Sandra Bowen posted some of the one’s that she enjoys (Thanks Sandra!) and my eyes lit up to all these apps I weren’t aware of.  So exciting!  I just had to share them with all of you for Tech Tuesday!
