On the Music Path: A Look at the Music Lessons App for iPad

On the Music Path app screenOn The Path released a beautiful app that I’ve enjoyed for the past year or so, called On the Music Path.

On the Music Path is an iPad app designed to offer in-depth lessons for a multitude of instruments by masters of their craft (like Roscoe Beck, Leland Sklar, Russell Ferrante, Eric Johnson, Lee Ritenour and many many more).

While it is free to download the app, the lessons run about $14.99 each.

The lessons are beautifully presented and include scrollable table of contents, tab (with a marker which follows along), standard notation, the ability to loop sections, variable speed and beautiful split-screen camera angles. These lessons are extremely well presented.

You can also record yourself playing along with the pieces.

I can’t imagine a more beautiful implementation of lessons on your iDevice. This is truly the future happening now and On The Path did an incredible job raising the bar.

You can watch Jeff Bridges talk about what he digs about the app, and you’ll see why I’m so impressed:

On the Music Path is available from the App Store. The app is designed for the iPad and requires iOS 5.0 or later.
