iPad/Keyboard Combos – the New Frontier

by susano49

Kilgore College iPad/Keyboard Orchestra to perform at TMEA! Sandra Siler is no stranger to offering innovative opportunities to her Kilgore College piano students.  So when Susan and Dennis asked her to bring her students to San Antonio to perform and demonstrate this New Frontier iPad/Keyboard Combo music, she said YES to the challenge!  They are performing 4
of the Combos listed below.  We have included three TMEA pdf’s from our session for you here:  Session Handout, Integrating iPads into Ensembles, and a list of free apps for Music Educators.

iPad-Keyboard Combos Handout

Integrating iPads into Ensembles

Free Apps for Music Ed List

First introduced by Steve Jobs in 2010, the iPad has become the standard for tablet computing. The iPad is having an ever-increasing impact and role in education, including music. It can provide our students with a highly portable device they can use to learn, compose, record, practice, and perform music. While the use of iPads as musical instruments in an ensemble setting isn’t a completely new idea at this time, it’s still novel and unfamiliar territory for most music teachers. Most of our students will be, if not already, far more comfortable with the idea of using iPads to perform and make music than we are.

With the iPad we have the opportunity to transform a device commonly used for playing games, watching movies, and passively listening to music into an innovative and engaging musical instrument. Students can use it to actively participate in making music with others anywhere, anytime.

This New Frontier music is our pathway to engage and challenge our students to hone their musical skills in their own digital playground. Our iPad/Keyboard Combos can be played on iPads alone or “combo-nations” of iPads and keyboards.  Sheet music (score & parts) and mp3 are sent directly to your email.
