iPad Pros in Guitar Class

Learning Guitar at EHS

Students begin the semester in Mrs. Wolf's guitar class with no previous playing experience, and leave being able to play with confidence. She is using technology through iPad Pros. She found an app, Youcisian, where students create an account and work at their own pace on playing technique. The app breaks skills into lead and rhythm guitar. The format is set up similar the Guitar Hero and has various accompaniment tracks to play with and songs of multiple styles for students to learn. They receive immediate feedback based on accuracy of tempo and pitch. Students have also started using the TabPro app. Now that students have a base skill set, they are able to search from 100,000's of songs and learn music that they want. The app will play the tune, show tab/chords, allow for tempo adjustments for difficult sections and many more player friendly features.
