iPad APPS

Below is a list of links to the iPad APPS which I HIGHLY recommend to all of my students. Each of these is under $7.00, and jam-packed with features! I've notice a BIG difference in my student's skill development since I began using these APPS during the lessons. My students are much more likely to practice these skills at home than they used to be, since they LOVE playing games on the iPad, and I LOVE that they are learning faster and better than ever before. Many of these APPS are iPhone friendly, also.
"Music Theory Pro" is the best APP of it's kind. Featuring over 20 games for learning key signatures, chords, scales and inversions. Also includes ear training drills for chords, scales, tempos and more! The BEST value!
"Hit the Note" helps students drill the location of the notes on ANY instrument. This APP responds to the sound of your instrument or voice by using the microphone on your device. Great for beginning piano students, string and horn players, even singers!
 
"Rhythm Trainer" teaches students to read and play rhythms by tapping them on the iPad. This APP gives great feedback as to the students reading accuracy and time-keeping ability. Another one of my favorite APPS of ALL TIME!
"Frettester" is a highly versatile APP that teaches both the names of the notes on the staff, as well as their location on a variety of stringed instruments. Users can customize exactly WHICH notes they wish to study. My #1 APP!
 
"Real Piano" provides a virtual keyboard large enough to be useful for practicing patterns on the keyboard when away from the piano. Also includes a huge piano chord library for reference. Super value!
"Piano Notes" trains students to name the notes on the staff and to associate them directly to the keyboard. Includes both clefs, key signatures and more. A MUST for all piano students! Available at a bargain price, too!
 
"Garage Band" gives students the means to record themselves during practice and listen back. Includes a large library of instruments for creating and recording your own songs. An incredibly powerful and fun to use APP. A MUST for composers and songwriters!
"Metronomics" is the best and last metronome a musician will ever need. Easily customizable settings let you create your own metronomes from simple to complex with custom subdivisions, accents, sounds and settings. Features a visual metronome and a easy to read display. Endlessly programmable, from subdivisions to polyrhythms, this is the last word in metronomes!
 
"Frettester" is a highly versatile APP that teaches both the names of the notes on the staff, as well as their location on a variety of stringed instruments. Users can customize exactly WHICH notes they wish to study. My #1 APP!
"Perfect Pitch Practice" helps students develop their pitch awareness and memory. This APP has multiple levels of difficulty, starting with 2 pitches at a time, and leading up to all 12. Perfect pitch CAN be acquired through practice, and consistent use of APPs like this one can help students unlock their pitch perception potential!
