Welcome.

This guide is primarily for teachers working in special needs schools, but plenty of it is also useful for

– Teaching assistants
– Carers
– Family & friends

You don’t need to be a musician. You don’t need to have have used an iPad before.

iPads come into their own in SEN/D contexts. They are easily adaptable to fit the needs of the user, are multi-sensory, and organise music in new, intuitive ways.

The significant impact that iPad music-making can have on the lives of people with SEN/D means that more and more of our work is in this area. This guide starts at the very beginning – which iPad should I buy? What is an app? – and provides information on equipment, functionality and available resources (all free).
