One might think that after publishing a book about using the iPad in my studio I might tire of the subject. In addition, one might ask why I would begin this blog when I already have one called 88pianokeys.me, good grief, isn’t one enough?
Little did I know how my fascination with the iPad would evolve into a book. However, a book seemed so permanent and technology is anything but. This concerned me enough to the point that I knew this book would need an ongoing companion. One that would offer support along the way for those seeking
- help with a newly purchased iPad
- the perfect app for…
- innovative assignments for lab time
- tools to enhance instruction
- studio management assistance
- and more
Along with this concern of the temporary tendencies of technology was my observation that there is no one site that has all the answers to those issues listed above. There are numerous people who share glimpses of their use of technology at blogs, on Facebook, in magazines, but for the most part, there is no stopping place to load up with what you need for teaching with apps in your studio. I believe this site will fill that niche.
With such a lofty ambition, it would be silly of me to think I could have all the answers. Although I may have some, it is my intention that those who have knowledge on this topic will intersect here–some what like a trading post or co-op.
At this point, this blog will offer columns such as:
The iPad Piano Teacher: A host for interviews with teachers around the globe who integrate the iPad providing a peek into their lessons and lifestyles.
One App At a Time: A venue for reviewing apps and explaining how I specifically use them in my teaching, originally found at 88pianokeys. Can’t wait to tell you how I’ve been using Garageband in the studio.
App Spotlight: A stage for worthy app developers to showcase his/her latest app and explain the latest updates since the publication of the book.
iPad Hotline: A place to post a question and find the answer.
Ideally, these could expand to something bigger and I have more ideas still under wrap. Some of my dreams are just too big to house at this present site. Can’t wait to see what the future holds as this will be part of the MTTCampus.com. Have you become a member yet?
As you embark or continue on your iPad journey , stop by, refuel and move forward at
“Life is a journey,
not a destination.”
