How I Use It
I used it in our physical education dance class. After learning some of the common dance moves, students create their own music and dance steps using garage band. Then they put it all together in a video and show it off to parents during our parent/ student demonstration of learning night! This made our dance unit (one students generally don't like) really fun and engaging for even the most reluctant dancer!
My Take
This is a wonderful music creation tool that is very easy and motivating to use. I love that it is intuitive to use and you don't need a music background to create something fun. Honestly we use it with our grade three students and I can't think of anything it can so to improve
