My main computer is an iPad Pro so most (but not all) of my recommended apps are for iPhone or iPad. Here are the apps/websites I use for teaching music:

Music Memos (iPad / iPhone) – Free
Converts player chords (guitar, piano, ukulele) into chord diagrams and adds bass or drum support. Great for improvisation of teaching about chords, chordal accompaniment, chord relationships etc.

GarageBand (iPad / iPhone) – Free
It’s big and it’s bad and it does everything a musician could want from a piece of technology. Recording, performing, aural skills, looping, song creation, form, structures, it’s all in there.

Hook Theory – Free website service
Learned three chords and want more? Hook takes chord progressions as inputs and lays out all other songs that use that progression. Great for teaching anything to do with form or chordal harmony and accompaniment.
