Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) February 6, 2009
JamStudio.com is an innovative web-based application that allows virtually anyone to become a songwriter. With more than 140,000 registered users in more than 160 countries, JamStudio.com has already become the world's #1 way to "create music online", and it sits in the top position on Google for that search term as well.
Now, schools are getting in on the JamStudio.com act.
In December, JamStudio.com announced their new Education Grant Program that enables music teachers and students to get an "All Access Pass" on the site for free (normally $4.95 per month). The All Access Pass on JamStudio.com is a premium service that enables site users to export their finished songs in the MP3 file format.
As of January 31st, more than 50 schools and 10,000 students were enrolled in the JamStudio.com grant program. Students love it and teachers are finding it to be a powerful tool for teaching songwriting in the classroom. "I'm an elementary school general music teacher," says Ken Lowther at Tom McCall Elementary in Forest Grove, OR. "For a web-based tool, JamStudio.com is by far the best for music creation that I have seen, both in ease of use and quality."
JamStudio.com is free and easy to use, and even those who do not play instruments can create and share songs with the site. Yet it is actually an amazingly powerful music creation tool that experienced musicians also use to compose, play, record, and download crystal clear digital music. The site gives songwriters access to a complete "virtual band" and a library of more than 100,000 recorded sounds of guitars, drums, pianos, and other instruments.
"Music educators love JamStudio.com. In January, we were promoted in the Journal of the Music Educators National Conference (MENC) - the largest organization of music educators in the U.S.," explains Dev Horn, VP of Education Programs for JamStudio. "We've had many schools tell us that they are incorporating JamStudio.com into their music education curriculum. We couldn't be happier with the response to our Education Grant Program."
"Now, thanks to private donors," added Horn, "we're pleased to announce that the Grant Program has just become available to another 10,000 participants."
Given that the first 10,000 students were signed up in a little over 30 days, interested teachers should visit JamStudio.com and sign up for the Education Grant Program right away!
