    This resource has everything that teachers need to make the most out of using a set of iPads for music lessons. The video resources are brilliant and do all the explaining for you. Every lesson has learning objectives, a detailed plan, and links to great assessment strategies. A thorough and complete resource that represents amazing value for money.

    Th New Teaching Music With Garage Band for iPad is a godsend for hard pressed teachers everywhere.

    With an aim to: ‘make no compromises when it comes to musicianship and theoretical depth’ but instead ‘simplify the planning and delivery of each lesson for teachers’, the resource contains around five term’s worth of material, covering the primary and lower secondary age range. With its complete step-by-step lesson plans, assessment tools and video resources, this guide will transform the teaching of music in schools.

    Most importantly, children and young people including those with SEND, will be enthused and empowered to create professional sounding music individually and in groups and it will be entirely their own composition.

    A well thought through and comprehensive resource which will be much loved and used in schools and wherever young people of all abilities learn.
