Already we’re seeing some great use cases powered by BandLab for Education in middle schools, high schools and colleges. We’re incredibly excited to see what students and educators are going to create on our platform now that it’s in full launch.”

BandLab for Education plans to include integrations with learning management systems such as Google Classroom in the near future. Although built to be a standalone platform, BandLab for Education is part of an overall BandLab product family which includes the open-to-all version of BandLab, and the BandLab Link series audio interfaces that connect instruments directly into mobile phones, laptops and desktops.

BandLab for Education is available for free. To sign up, view teacher tutorials and find more information, visit
