Today we revisited the iPad list of music apps we shared last year and wanted to add some interesting new apps to it. While some of these apps are totally free others like NotateMe is really pricy.  Browse through the titles listed below and see which ones you want to use in your music class. Enjoy

‘You no longer need a special person to help you turn to the next page, nor spend on expensive hardware. Musicians all over the world find it challenging using their hands to turn pages while practicing or playing their music.
