This site is a digital accompaniment to traditional piano lessons. Because it is dedicated entirely to piano instruction, it has a few advantages to other multi-instrument programs.
Hokusai is a quality recording app for student artists who play actual instruments rather than create using virtual ones. You can blend different parts of a musical piece together and because it quickly digitizes your music, you can dig in like a sound engineer would.
GarageBand is still one of the leaders in music education, primarily because students need not play an instrument to begin making music. The ease with which you can transition between other multimedia platforms (particularly iMovie) makes it a “go-to” for project-based learning, even outside of music education. While you may be familiar with earlier versions, it is worth checking in each school year to explore the ever-growing features and enhancements, most notably with how different young student musicians from around the globe can collaborate in real time.
Yousician is a great way to engage students in practicing their instrument, outside of lesson time. There are dozens of instruments and thousands of songs to dive into. It tracks progress and personalizes a syllabus that is constantly updating. You may also want to check out the added benefits of becoming a Yousician Distinguished Educator.
