Apps for Teaching Music

1. Singing Fingers HD by Beginner's Mind

Singing Fingers lets you fingerpaint with sound. Just touch the screen while you make a sound, and colorful paint

 2. Monter Chorus by ReignDesign.

If you teach your students melodies using solfege or numbers, this app gives a fun little twist rather than using a glockespiel or xylophone.

3. Finger Stomp Lite by greySox.

FingerStomp Lite gives you two scenes (a garage and a basketball court) which allow you to create rhythms à la the music group Stomp.

4. Percussive Free by Touch Media Productions.

Percussive Free demonstrates the beautiful sounds and visual attributes of this wonderfully designed application.  The Free version includes the Xylophone, showcasing two different mallet options along with two octave options.

5. Conga Drums Free by Cody Rotwein.

Now you can play conga anytime, anywhere with Conga Drums Free.  It features high resolution graphics and professionally recorded sounds.

This is a great follow-up to a lesson on Mozart or Rondo Alla Turka. The students get to choose which instruments they hear in the story.
Students are introduced to the instrument families and the individual instruments. There is a fun fact about each instrument and students can “play” each one.
 This app includes Flight of the Bumblebee, Maple Leaf Rag, Beethoven’s Fifth, and a couple of holiday pieces, so you can use the app as a follow-up to a listening lesson on one of those pieces.
