TakeLessons, the nation's fastest growing music lessons provider, explores a list of iPhone apps to make learning and teaching music easier.
Online PR News – 22-December-2011 – – What a year for Apple – iPhone sales are still through the roof, Siri continues to be a hot topic, and Steve Jobs is now being recognized with a posthumous Grammy award for his part in revolutionizing the music industry. Nowadays smartphones can help with anything and everything, it seems; for many, it’s hard to imagine living without them!
But besides organizing schedules and feeding one's Angry Birds addiction, the iPhone is a great resource for music teachers and music fans alike.
TakeLessons (http://takelessons.com), the nation's fastest growing music lessons provider, took the opportunity to share a list of 5 iPhone apps that make learning and teaching music easier.
The following is an excerpt from the blog post:
"1. ACappella – This simple song recording app can be used to record voices into tracks that can be played at the same time or one by one. The user can adjust the volume, tempo, and time signature. The app was designed for ease of sharing files: song URL’s can be posted to Facebook and Twitter or shared on a special website called “SingSing.” ($1.99)
2. Notes for Little Composers – Designed for ages 3 and up, this app can be used to introduce beginners to music notation and basic composition. The user taps on the treble clef screen to make notes, hear the names of notes, and create simple songs. Ideal as an accompaniment to starting music lessons. ($0.99)
3. Ear Trainer – This app is designed for beginning to advanced music students, and provides exercises on intervals, chords, scales, and relative pitch. A virtual piano keyboard helps you recognize the notes that have been played. Individual progress is tracked so that users can pinpoint areas of strength or weakness. ($6.99)"
