NAMM 2010 Best Tools for Schools: Jammit for iPhone

For the first time ever, School Band & Orchestra, MMR’s sister magazine invited educators to walk the NAMM exhibit halls in search of the most useful products for use in the classroom and with student musicians. Teachers and school administrators in attendance filled out specially designed ballots indicating their top choices in 13 different categories.
