Ethan Och blazing new trails with iPad and iPhone musical applications
Ethan Och couldn’t have anticipated spending the summer participating in marching band, but by doing so he blazed new trails with his use of technology.
Living with the challenge of spinal muscular atrophy, Och’s mind works to find new and different ways of doing things. “Ethan is very intuitive and catches on easily,” said Swanville High School Technology Coordinator and Dean of Students Sheryl Johnson. “He is always up.”
Swanville Band Director Gina Christopherson said, “Ethan discovered an application (app) on his android phone. That app had too much of a time lag, so I checked my iPhone and found several apps. ‘Cowbell Plus’ had the least time lag.” See more in Jennie Zeitler’s Morrison County Record story.
