How I Use It
We used in the music class to work on Pentatonic compositions. The students had to record with the drum beat (metronome set to 60) and later add a melodic instrument. Once done with this task, they can add another line of melody. The students enjoyed working on this. Initially some of them struggled but slowly with practice they enjoyed working on it.
My Take
This is a very good app which brings out the creativity in the students. We used it with the elementary students. The apps is easy to use and it is good practice for the students before they start using the Garageband on the macbook.
