One of the key content areas where technology is making such a tremendous contribution is in the teaching of music. There are now a wide variety of web tools and mobile apps that teachers can use in their class to instruct their students on the various musical concepts from composition to distribution. Most of these tools are free and easy to use. I have featured several resources for teaching music in the past, however, today I am sharing with you this collection of interesting iPad apps to use in music classrooms. Have a look and share with us what think of it.
