Students who choose to take Band at George Waters have four band classes per 6 day cycle. This year one of the four classes are in the classroom so students have the chance to learn and explore music using their iPads.
Today students created music using their iPads using the app Garage Band. The engagement levels were through the roof as students chose different instruments and created music while the teacher spoke about music theory.
Students enjoy learning music this way because:
