An App Giveaway

It seems like most piano teachers I read about these days are getting iPads for their studios. They sound like so much fun! I can't wait for the day that I can add one to my "teaching materials." (Solely for teaching, I assure you....ok, maybe not!) Actually my brother is entered to win one, and he is VERY sure he is going to win...and when he does he is going to give it to me, because he has no need for it, right? RIGHT?

Anyway, I enjoy reading about all the great apps that are out there in relation to teaching, and I can't wait for the day that I get to try them out. I have wondered, on earth will I remember all these great apps? I can just see myself doing searches for "apps" on all of your blogs to see the ones you use. I will probably post a question on my blog, "What great apps are out there for teaching? What apps do you use in your studio?" I will search high and low for the best apps, comparing all those metronomes, and finally settling on what I think I will use the most.


I could compile all of your "app" posts into one convenient list so that not only me, but other piano teachers who add an iPad to their studios will have a place to go read the reviews about teaching apps.


Much like I did with the recital posts, I can keep updating this list with apps that you all think are great. I am going to begin putting this list together, so if you have blogged about an app that you would recommend, please leave a comment and let me know!

And in the meantime, Natalie from Music Matters Blog is hosting an app giveaway as we speak! Not just one, but TWO great apps, with three copies of each being given away. So you have six chances to win! So head on over to her review to leave your comment to enter and (hopefully) win!


  1. I really love the apps that Anne Crosby found and have reviewed on her blog...check it out. The bottle spinner app is my latest addition. I look forward to learning more about other apps for teaching.

  2. Music Cubes and Music Tones are good apps for learning pitch patterns and note names. You can also find it online at
    I also like the apps Anne Crosby posted on her blog. :) I didn't know about Simon's Cat before viewing her blog. The clips are really funny.

  3. @Wendy Chan Thanks Wendy! I'll be linking up to your blog in this list!

  4. @Lacy Range Those two do look great. Thanks for pointing them out to me, and for reviewing them. I'll be sure to link up to your blog!

  5. Concerning the iPad- For one I am not certain I am going to get it. And if I do you can use it once a month:) I have researched them and do look like they would be handy for teaching, and for everyday use.
