NinGenius Music School in the Band Room for Testing Fingering and Note Names

NinGenius School

I am loving the ability that I now have to have my students show me exactly where they are at in learning their fingerings and note names as individuals. In a large group setting, with only one teacher, it is challenging to get a chance to listen to every single kid play by themselves. That is where having apps like NinGenius Music School comes in very handy!

As Instructor the scores are easy to view for each of the students. Tap on the Instructor Mode and enter your password (assuming you have setup the Instructor Info already, if not go do that!)

The next very important step is to realize that you are now looking at a LIST of all the students not JUST the info for that one student! Now it is time to evaluate their progress!

You can see Drew here has made some nice improvement over the past 8 times that he has played errrr Tested. It is interesting to note that he has had a few jumps forward and then backwards in his scores too. Also good to note that he went from 7/11 to 15/17. This is one of the reasons I like this app – as the kid gets better they have to work harder and do more questions!

  1. Thanks for this post and for all of your posts on various apps. I have saved countless hours by using your Twitter and blog posts as a resource for discovering new apps. A couple questions for you: Do you have a few iPads in your classroom or are you 1:1? Are the students buying the student edition for this app, or do you have it installed on a few iPads?

    Thanks

    1. So glad that you have found useful suggestions on my blog! Its always nice to share and there’s no sense in re-inventing the wheel!

      I have only a few iPads here. It works out for apps like NinGenius Music School though because it allows for a whole bunch of kids to go through one or two times on the game every day.
