There is a  student iPad app for MusicFirst Junior and Groovy Music.

Teachers can use existing music resources, create quizzes and tasks and check students progress

Perhaps the most exciting thing for me is that Groovy Music is back as a fully functioning iPad app, both the explore and create features included, so students can explore music concepts and collect tokens to unlock new sounds in Groovy Shapes, Groovy Jungle and Groovy City.  That means an app that can cater to all levels of Primary/Intermediate school.

Well worth a look if you have been searching for a new way to engage students, and deliver music resources across the whole school.

Auralia 5 and Musition 5

auraliamusition

With real audio and notation, Auralia 5 & Musition 5 provide superb contextual ear training and music theory. Access through a browser version creates even
more access for students using iPads, tablets and chromebooks.

LIBRARY CONTENT & QUESTIONS
The content library contains hundreds of audio recordings and notation excerpts, providing students and teachers with an almost endless number of high quality questions, for both junior and advanced students. Teachers can import their own audio and notation examples, allowing content to be mapped to school curriculum.  Any item can be included in theory and aural worksheets, in combination with any of the existing Auralia and Musition drills. The included notation editor even allows you to create your own scores, making it very easy to customize melodic, rhythmic and harmonic dictation exercises!

CLASSROOM
A complete interface refresh has made it easier than ever for teachers to manage their students, classes and tasks.  New features include timing – all practice time is recorded, and time limits can now be set on any test! The reports now include a student summary, presenting all practice, test and course scores into a simple sequence for each student.  Date selection has been dramatically improved and the new report design is much easier to read.

SINGING
Singing support in Auralia 5 has been dramatically improved.  The new microphone setup wizard helps each student set their optimum input level, ensuring accurate pitch assessment. We also now allow students to hear back their singing after it’s assessed – an absolutely fantastic tool for student review!

TOPICS
Auralia features Part Dictation, requiring students to transcribe one or more SATB parts, using simple and advanced chord vocab.  In Musition we have an great new topic called Polyrhythms, making it easy to practice patterns such as 3:2, 5:4 and many more!
