This project will involve students using iPads for various activities. The 4th and 5th graders will use the GarageBand app to compose their own music instrumentals and also record their vocals to the instrumentals. They will also take their recordings and burn them to a CD with the CD burner purchased with Foundation grant funds in 2014. All grade levels will use various music apps from the app store to enhance their learning and understanding of basic music concepts. Students will also use the iPads to record school concerts from different angles and views and will edit the videos to make a school concert video. One future project will include making music videos to post on YouTube, Facebook or other social media. This project will allow the teacher to supplement the music education class with alternative methods of study that will help enhance student understanding of music theory through the following: Rhythmic Notation – learning rhythmic values of notes/rests; Music Notation- learning how to read music in various clefs; music production and improvisation (advanced); creating music, songs, sounds, chords, and melodies and much more. Students will learn to use iMovie to combine music and video into one production and some apps will track students’ progress for mastery of some musical concepts.
