Recently I gave a keynote speech for a music education conference with the theme Play, Create, Inspire. I loved this theme because it was simple to tie into what’s going on in music technology right now.
In the keynote speech I covered 4 topics – songwriting apps, multitrack music videos, sampling and live looping. Today I’m going to share the songwriting apps that I mentioned during the keynote speech – what they are, how super-successful musicians are using them and how you can use them with your own students.
