Fun music apps for learning and to pass the time!:

  • Cove – an app that allows you to create music to capture your mood and feelings. Like a mood journal but using music instead of words to express how you feel. Currently being trialled in the NHS.
  • Bandimal – fun creative music composer, for iPhone/iPad.
  • GarageBand – powerful app for iPhone and iPad that features a range of musical instruments and a recording studio, so you can create your own music.
  • Music Maker Jam – similar to GarageBand, but for Android users
