Garageband and accessibility 

The new state of the art Apple Mac suite at Priestley Smith allows all pupils to make accessible music. Children learn ‘qwerty’ shortcut keys to make music in the popular garageband app. Using Apple’s built in screen reader called ‘voice-over’ pupils can sequence several tracks of music together using their own ideas or choose samples from a library of pre-programmed loops.
