Have you been toying with the idea of purchasing an iPad but aren’t sure if you can truly justify doing so? Do you have an iPad but you haven’t yet used it in your piano lessons? Do you already use an iPad but are always on the hunt for more ideas? Then this podcast is for you!
The iPad in Your Piano Studio
Today we’re chatting with Australian piano teacher and blogger Tim Topham. Tim shares excellent advice on how to effectively add an iPad to your piano lessons to motivate your students, add relevancy to your lessons, and make your own piano teaching life easier and more efficient.
Listen in as Tim discusses what not to do with an iPad in your lessons, how an iPad can engage even your most skeptical teens, and how to select apps that will be instantly beneficial to your piano teaching.
You can find more great advice on iPad use (and a whole lot more!) from Tim on his blog at TimTopham.com. And, if you’re really keen on using an iPad in your lessons, you can check out a great new book created by Leia Veiss called The iPad Piano Studio.
