The iPad is having an ever-increasing impact and role in education, including music. It can provide our students with a highly portable device they can use to learn, compose, record, practice, and perform music. While the use of iPads as musical instruments in an ensemble setting isn’t a completely new idea at this time, it’s still novel and unfamiliar territory for most music teachers. Most of our students will be, if not already, far more comfortable with the idea of using iPads to perform and make music than we are.
With the iPad we have the opportunity to transform a device commonly used for playing games, watching movies, and passively listening to music into an innovative and engaging musical instrument. Students can use it to actively participate in making music with others anywhere, anytime.
