More Detailed Descriptions!

September 1st 4pm EST Jamhub Webinar Using iPads in a music curriculum is a great way to help students create music, and develop their improvisation skills. Far too often, the iPad music making experience is individualized, rather than being a collaborative one. If you have a classroom of students working on iPads, usually, the only way it can be a shared experience is by constantly passing around headphones to let people listen to each iPad. A classroom of students working on iPads without headphones can sound like cacophony, and even though speakers can be held up towards people’s ears, the sound quality suffers, and true listening is not always occurring. Even splitters can be clumsy and sometimes a mess of wires. A JAMHUB allow students to take the music making experience on iPads to the highest level. Up to 7 students can plug their iPads into a Jamhub and hear each other’s music in studio quality sound. Students can decide who they hear, who they don’t hear, and how loud they hear each person. A teacher can monitor everything with a headset/microphone, and they can offer feedback individually or to the whole group all at once. If students are creating music, they can seamlessly share their ideas with each other and make it a collaborative experience. A Jamhub gets students talking to each other about the music they are creating. If students are having a “jam session” and improvising, they can all hear each other clearly in their headphones, and it becomes an active, engaging, and fun experience. A Jamhub can even be used in live performance! Seven iPads can be used as live instruments, all while the teacher is controlling the mix that the audience hears by using a Solemix Remote. By watching this webinar, you will learn all about how a Jamhub can help your students become collaborative musicians that have numerous opportunities for musical creativity and improvisation.
