I’ve discovered a few more music apps that I’m enjoying and wanted to share descriptions in case anyone was interested…
My First Classical Music App by Naxos- This is an interactive iPad app where you hear music and discover who writes it, about the instruments, etc… It has narrated text, animation and sound effects. It includes a full album of music of- Peer Gynt, Magic Flute, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Carnival of the Animals, Holst’s Planets, Petrushka, Peter and the Wolf and more.
Glossary of Music- this is a great music dictionary compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
PianoMeter (Michael Coon)- This is another practice note drill app for the iPad. but what I like about it is the student is drilling their notes to a steady metronome beat.
Musical Flash Cards (Kids Place)- This is just a fun app that has pictures of music instruments with their sounds and the instrument name. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad
The Carnival of the Animals (cstools GmbH)- At Christmas camp we learned about Carnival of the Animals so I downloaded this interactive iPad app to use. I ended up using it with my younger students and they absolutely loved it!
Spin the bottle HD- Just a fun spin the bottle app that I will occasionally use in group lessons or camp settings. You can set it from as low as 2 players up to 30 players. You even use it as a number generator if you wanted (up to 30).
Well that’s it for now. I’ll be sure to share more as I find them! Enjoy!
