About Peter Willis ProductionsThis website’s primary function is to promote the use of using the iPad and computers in the classroom to educate children from grades 4-12 about current music technologies. We start with the basics here (GarageBand) and work our way up to more professional systems such as Pro Tools and/or Logic Pro in the years to follow. We have tailored workshops for every grade and skill level and work to integrate our workshops with your classroom curriculum. We teach students how to compose advertisements, music to accompany their Power Point presentations, general composition theories and musical production, as well as reinforcing the concept of the cross curricular applications that the iPad and music based Apps can share with studies in Math, Science, Social Studies etc.
