People often ask for my advice when it comes to useful music-related iPad apps. I’ve given my fair share of recommendations, but luckily there are more seasoned iPad users than I who so generously share their knowledge with me!
Fellow music therapist Bonnie Hayhurst is one such iPad expert, and this month she is giving the lowdown on her favorite music-related apps. Her series is called “The 12 Apps of Christmas” and can be found on her blog, The Groovy Garfoose.
Thanks to Bonnie’s posts (she’s currently on day 9), I already have a list going of apps I need to download immediately. My favorite so far is the Apple Camera Connection Kit, which I didn’t even know existed! I have already added that to my Amazon wishlist :)
If you have an iPad that you use for music therapy or other music-related purposes, or if your students or clients use an iPad, this is a series you need to check out. And now I’m off to the app store to do a little window shopping!
Thanks for sharing with your readership, Rachel! Be sure to check out iTunes apps of the year for 2011 when you window shop. :)
My pleasure, Bonnie! And thanks for the tip — I will be sure to do that!
Thanks for linking to this series. We’re working on a proposal for our hospice to buy us/find grants for iPads and this is so helpful! I’ve also been getting more questions from parents about what music apps are good; this will be a great resource!
I have a new iPad 2. I was thinking about getting the hard shell case with handle that is made by an online vendor for special needs. The vendor is called AMDI. Does anyone have any advice about cases? Thank you! Your site is awesome!
