One of the iPad’s most powerful apps, Garageband enables you to create your own music, either from scratch or using loops which you can adapt to the sound you’re trying to achieve. You can also record your own sounds and vocals to enhance your projects.
For teaching music it’s great – you can introduce a huge variety of instruments and discuss rhythms, mixes and composition. For younger children I have used it to create sounds which match the moods of different characters. Here’s an example from year two.
You can also use Garageband to create soundscapes for iMovie projects.
