Chad Criswell writes, “Almost every music education classroom can be enhanced in some way through the use of technology.” He goes on to spotlight Harman’s innovation with technology from iPads and apps to GarageBand software.

“I hook the iPad up to GarageBand and use it to keep a beat or play an accompaniment that makes ‘Twinkle’ a lot more fun,” Harman said.

r

One of Harman’s favorite apps is NinGENIUS for the iPad. NinGenius turns note identification and fingering drills into a fun, martial arts-themed game with varying degrees of difficulty. Results are saved in a way that allows the teacher to view the play history and stats for individual students.

r

One thing to mention is, “the technology teachers use is never the primary source of instruction. Instead, it is brought in to enhance or reinforce specific problem areas with which their students need assistance.”

Who knew technology with music could be so much fun? That is just what the students say about Harman’s class: “She makes it fun!”
