using ipads to make music

“Ben’s training gave me lots of ideas and inspiration for how to improve my teaching using a variety of apps on the iPad. It also gave me ideas for how to include certain pupils more in my music lessons using the iPad”

Claire Myres, Music Teacher

About the training:

iPads offer a wealth of exciting opportunities for music-making in general and, in particular, for people who face learning and or physically disabling barriers.
