Using iPads in Participatory Music – Part One: Research

We are delighted to present this new report and review by Graham Dowdall exploring the use of iPads in challenging settings.

With an extensive background in participatory music-making, especially with children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, Graham investigates the potential of the ubiquitous tablet in a musical context.

Graham considers ‘Participatory Music Making’ and the new musical opportunities created by the innovative realm of apps. He explores the use of this accessible technology to enhance musical experiences within:

  • producing and performing
  • scoring and music teaching
  • mood and sensory experiences – sounds and visuals

In Part One, Graham shares his research findings, as well as considering the future of iPads within music education. Part Two of Graham’s research features a comprehensive review of apps in the market and explains how the iPad might best be put to use in your music workshops.
