On Martin Luther King Jr day, we had the day off from work. Here in Chicago, the Old Town School of Folk Music had a children’s music concert with Ella Jenkins. Of course the kids were adorable and hearing the multi-cultural messages and songs from Ella felt like the right way to celebrate MLK day this year.
This concert also got us thinking about some of the wonderful musical apps on the iPad. So many kids have a natural love of music, why not create an iPad curriculum for music? The great music apps available today could help get kids even more engaged in music and stimulate a deeper interest in creating their own music.
Here is just a short list of amazing music apps for iPad learning produced by one leading developer smule:
Ocarina: turns your iPad into an easy to play flute
MagicPiano: easily play songs on your iPad piano (free)
MadPad: captures sounds around you and then you can mix them
