The Arts

“If we are to empower our youth. If we are to prepare them for a dynamic future – we must help them develop their creativity. As the essence of the human experience – it shapes the future… it is the building block that connects our human experience to life itself, a core discipline for developing human potential.” ~ Bob Bates

All Guitar Chords | GarageBand | Functional Ear Trainer | Launchpad | The Metronome | Piano | Voice Memos


All Guitar Chords

Use All Guitar Chords app to find Guitar Chords, Chord Progressions (new) Scales, Triads, Arpeggios, Notes On The Fretboard, Reverse Chord Finder Tool, Chord Quiz, Alternate Guitar Tunings and Chord Scale Relationships.

Functional Ear Trainer

The main difference between the Functional Ear Trainer and other methods is that it teaches you to distinguish between tones in the context of a particular musical key. You begin to recognize the role (or function) of each tone in this key, which is incredibly similar to its role in other keys of the same scale.

GarageBand

And with Live Loops, it makes it easy for anyone to have fun creating music like a DJ. Use Multi-Touch gestures to play keyboards, guitars, and create beats that make you sound like a pro — even if you’ve never played a note before. Plug in a guitar or bass and play through classic amps and stompbox effects. Use a Touch Instrument, microphone, or a guitar and instantly record a performance with support for up of 32 tracks. Use the Sound Library to download additional free instruments, loops and sound packs. Audio Unit Extensions in iOS 13 allow you to play, record and mix third-party instruments or effects right into GarageBand.

Launchpad

Launchpad is the original number-one app for making and remixing electronic music. Instantly combine beats, basslines, melodies, vocals and FX loops into new creations. Layer DJ-style effects to chop and change your sound. Record your performance and share it with others.

The Metronome
