The School of Music

The iLearn@Olivet initiative is meant to enhance the education our music students receive.

When introducing the iPad to the School of Music, we developed three main goals:

  1. Make Olivet’s system of course delivery the best it can be.
  2. Prepare our students in the use of technology as a method of teaching and learning.
  3. Reduce the cost of materials such as textbooks and music copies, thereby reducing the cost of the college experience.

Ultimate Drill Book

Olivet is partnering with the creators of "Drill Book," in making it fully available on iPad for Olivet's School of Music. Our nearly 200-member marching band will benefit from the ease of this new technology, as well as the convenience of having new drills sent directly to their device.

"AirTurn" Bluetooth Pedals

Turning a page of music has never been so simple. With "AirTurn" Bluetooth pedals, instrumentalists don't have to lift a finger for a page turn. These foot pedals are sleek, easy-to-use, and allow our instrumentalists to focus on what is most important - creating beautiful music.

Other Exciting Opportunities

The iPad has opened a whole new world of opportunities for our School of Music. With it, comes a small learning curve, which is why we provide tutorials on a variety of apps — so students can quickly learn the "best practices" when it comes to their iPad. Also, be sure to check us out on iTunesU for additional audio and video content!
