The Frisco School of Music presents 'iBand'

We can only imagine the fun we would have had in music lessons had the iPad been around in our day. Almost anything is possible when an entire band's worth of iPad music software can be purchased for less than the price of a KFC 'Bargain Bucket'.

The students of Frisco School of Music have been busy transferring their real-world musical skills to the virtual arena. iPads running a variety of music apps, including GarageBand, Pocket Organ C3B3, iJ Bass and VoiceJam were used to perform three Beatles tunes. iRig Mic running VoiceJam on an the iPad was used to record the vocals. Nice to see the iPhone 4 being used to capture some of the close-up footage.

Great work guys! We look forward to seeing where you take 'iBand' next.

true wish we could have played it back then like what they used now a days but nothing compares the energy we have in playing great music. But congratulations for showing that ipad is more than just for social networking.

That video is blowing my mind. I wonder what could happen in ten or twenty years if this sort of instrumentation becomes more mainstream...
