Remote app in reverse?

I have a Macbook Air and an iPad. When they're both at home I want to be able to control music playback on the iPad from the Air. What do I want?

The idea is to control song playback on my iPad connected to the stereo from my laptop across the room while I'm at my desk without getting up, so assume all devices are on the same wifi, could be VPN connected.
I tried a few apps (TunesRemote comes closest) designed specifically for control of the Music app on the iPad but really I want a better interface and integrated control of all music apps, like MusicControl offers for Music plus Spotify/Pandora, but that will only work between two Macbooks, not Macbook + iPad. The Remote app Apple offers goes the other way, iPad to Mac, I want the reverse.
Next step is to consider some kind of full remote desktop solution I suppose. What do I want?
