High School Band: There's An App For That

Join the Band.

Next week we're going to spend a little time with a public school band that rocks, swings, and breaks new musical ground.

This isn't your typical high school group. The members make music by combining traditional instruments with iPad tablet computers and apps. Oh, and all the members happen to have serious learning disabilities and autism spectrum disorders. On Morning Edition and All Things Considered, we'll introduce you to a music teacher in Queens, New York who uses tech and a passion for teaching to help open doors for kids with severe mental and physical challenges.
