Integrating Technology to Inspire Students Love of Music
My students need an iPad to enhance classroom instruction and internalize basic music theory concepts via the latest in technology and digital innovation.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Do you remember how dry learning fundamental music theory can be? Having a mini iPad in my students' hands may inject some "wow" factor into their internalization of basic music concepts.
My students are some of the most hard working, talented, yet humble musicians in the county.
They are renown as one of our area's top public school performing groups and often perform at local businesses, charities, and other events to give back to their community. Recently adjudicators at a competition took me aside to ask more about the program which produced such "well mannered, well prepared, and well dressed" students. I'm proud to associate with these kids each and every day.
Students will be able to utilize a variety of applications from Apple's App store to enhance their learning of music theory on this mini iPad. One of the best applications is derived from music theory and allows students to identify notes, intervals, chords, and scales along with incorporating a progressive ear training curriculum to train and improve each student's aural skills.
Many students don't have the opportunity at home to interact with the latest and greatest tech available.
Having a few mini iPads in class may provide them with opportunities to utilize technology in ways they wouldn't have otherwise in addition to energizing their learning via fun, new tools.
