Through the generosity of ACT, Communities of Coastal Georgia Foundation, Christ Church Frederica, Susan Shipman, Uli Keller, and Sarah and Anthony Kreimborg, GIYO is the owner of 35 iPads! These iPads are already assigned to the musicians in our Philharmonia orchestra. Our musicians use the iPads for storing and reading their music. For some students, the iPad is their only computer in the house. iPads can be used for schoolwork through the school portal and for internet research. Each iPad comes with a foot pedal for turning pages while playing, an Apple pencil to mark notes on music, a protective folio and cables. Our librarian is able to download music and applications and monitor usage. Previously we printed music on reams and reams of paper each semester. No more massive printing or lost pages!
