Music app helps school orchestra hit the right note

iPads are increasingly being used in schools as aids to teaching. But now researchers at the University of Sussex have developed an app which could transform the way students learn music.

The notes and tempo for each player's instrument is displayed on their own tablet computer, helping to keep them in tune in with the rest of the orchestra.
