  1. Thank you so much for this list! I've been looking for some of these myself, but it's great to find them here! I also use whiteboard apps for students to draw notes and rhythms in my classroom and VidRhythm to make funny youtube-like videos.

  2. Do you use these in your classroom? If so, for the whole class, small group, centers? I would LOVE to know how you utilize one or two specifically. Thanks!

  3. I'm still learning how to include them, but it is still difficult when I only have one iPad. I have blogged specifically about Monkey Drum, Rhythm Cat, and Blob Chorus. In those posts I talk more specifically about classroom applications. http://musicwithmrsdennis.blogspot.com/search/label/apps
    I hope this is helpful. As I discover more ways to include the iPad in the classroom, I will share my ideas and experiences. I've thought about incorporating BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) but I'm not sure how many of the apps would be available on other device other than Apple products. I haven't ventured down this road quite yet! :)

  4. Wow this is a great list of apps. I also really like AURALBOOK. It's the only app that analyzes your listening skills and gives you tips for improvement. It's really a revolutionary app and I would recommend it to anyone trying to improve their listening skills. And it's free!
