Do you have an iPad? Are you thinking of getting one? This book provides the tools to help you tap into its full potential for use in any music studio. You will understand the benefits of using an iPad to enhance your teaching, discover how it can save you time and money and learn how to integrate specific apps into your daily lessons. Leila Viss, blogger at, has taught piano for over 25 years and has always included a lab session to reinforce concepts with every private lesson. She has become unashamedly infatuated with the iPad and the variety of apps and claims it has revolutionized her 21st century teaching. This book is a direct result of Leila's desire to share her new love with others. From those who are still contemplating the purchase of an iPad to those considered veteran iPad owners, there's something for everyone---not only for those who teach piano but also other instruments as well. The chapters are concise with striking graphics and a fresh format so that information can be gathered quickly. With a scanner app you can scan the QR codes sprinkled throughout the book with any mobile device. The paperback with digital options provides access to a growing video library and an updated blog with posts about the latest apps and how teachers like you are using the iPad in their studios. The fusion of physical and online experiences provides an exclusive hybrid approach that combines a continual stream of the latest information, ideas, insight, and inspiration.

    I was somewhat disappointed as from the description I expected a lot more recommendations of specific apps. If you are looking for a book that extols the virtues of using apps in your piano studio, without much direction as to which ones…go for it. If you are looking for...

    direction on which apps are best…Save your money. At the end of each chapter I kept expecting to see reviews of apps, instead it was the EXACT same sentence. "There are so many, I can't hope to name them all". Great. But could you list a FEW?
