Kids live in a technology world and I think its important that we as teachers and therapists are able to speak their language and find interesting and innovative ways to keep them engaged in their learning. Many of the Kids that take part in my adapted piano lessons for those with additional needs are familiar with the ipad and use it for their learning in a school setting. So last week I tried out some note reading apps to see if they would help improve note reading and theory. It has certainly been successful and there has been lots of laughter as they have had so much fun!
Here is a list of apps I found to be fun and educational and that the kids responded to well:
- Flashnote Derby - 69p
- Do Re Memory- 69p
- Piano Monkey - 69p
- DooDah - Free
- Pluto Piano - 69p
- Let's read music HD Lite - Free
- My Note names- Free
- Music Theory for Beginners - £2.99
Happy Practicing with your note reading!!
