Tickling the iPad’s Ivories
What’s better than a room of pianos? How about a room of iPads that can teach children how to play the piano? That’s exactly what Piano Wizard Academy’s iPad app can do for a school’s music department. The app is currently a Kickstarter project looking for $20,000 of development funding, but it is expected to be funded by late September. Its five-step lesson plan works on timing, musical notation, tempo and fingering, but the big pay-off compared to a room of conventional pianos is that each student can wear headphones, making for the quietest music room.
