Paul Shimmons is a band teacher (grade 5-12) who is integrating technology into his teaching.

Paul started a great blog discussing his integration of technology into music education, with a specific focus on the iPad. He discovered Anytune when looking for a music slow downer app for the iPad. We gave him a promo code and he thinks he found some new ways to help at band rehearsal. Check it out at ipadmusiced.wordpress.com.

Some comments from Paul’s blog:

After using AnyTune HQ it becomes very apparent why we should be paying a little bit more for some of these apps.

Things like being able to get music in to the app is easy. Being able to set up a bunch of hit points per song is easy. Being able to quickly jump back and forth in my loops is easy. I can quickly adjust the start and stop points of my loop point. I can even share all of the marks/hitpoints and settings for all of my songs that I import into AnyTune. The sound quality is wonderful and type of files AnyTune can handle is great.
