Songify and iPad Make Beautiful Music Together

The first week of having an iPad in music is going really well!  5th graders used the app "Songify" to create a song about the five basic elements of music, rhythm, melody, harmony, expression, and form.  They were entranced by how quickly we produced our chart topper!

In third grade, we worked on identifying notes in the treble clef easily.  Students were able to move a note to any place on the treble clef. Then they identified the line or space on which it landed. When practice is fun, it seems students are able to better retain and recall basic information.

Using our music iPad, we'll create, play, and sing in new ways.

Thank you Jenison community for enhancing and enriching our schools!
