The iPad is amazing in many ways, particularly for musicians. This revolutionary device – still less than 5-yr-old – now provides nearly everything a modern musician needs for performing, recording, practicing or teaching. Musicians around the globe have now incorporated the iPad in their daily routine due to the increasing number of powerful apps now available for music.
