How I Use It
As a substitute teacher, I've seen students using this app to create their own music soundtracks. I'd like to experiment with it further as a means of creating soundtracks for student-created iMovies. I am not an expert user of this app by any means, but I have discovered my students find it easy to learn and use in upper elementary classes.
My Take
A great app for music classes. It is intuitive, but with enough depth to enable students to apply their music creation skills.
