#AppMonday - Music Apps

This week's #AppMonday is inspired by this video - North Point's iBand.  It got me thinking about how easy it would be to have kids use iDevices to participate in and create their own music.  I've included the apps that were used in the video below:

SoundGrid-a sound board, reviews state that it is very easy to use - $2.99
NLog Free Synthesizer - Synthesizer with many different options - Free
Melody Bells - play one handbell (by shaking, great for many students) or multiple ones by touch - $0.99
Guitarist - Allows you to hold chords & strum at the same time, comes with many different guitars - $3.99
iGOG - simple easy to drum kit, comes with 1 kit, but you can download other kits for free - $2.99
Bassist - Made by the same developer as Guitarist, only plays Bass Guitar - $2.99
iBand Tribal Percussion - includes several instruments like maracas, sticks & tambourine, you can play them by shaking or tapping - $0.99

This is just the tip of the iceberg for music apps available for iOS.  Have fun playing with these!
