Music Technology

Step up to the mic

  • Ideal for: Key stages 2-5, students with a basic grasp of technology
  • Typical structure: Half day up to a full year, max group size 15 students

These workshops can take place in our recently upgraded studio spaces or, if you prefer, we can bring portable equipment to your school.  Learning to make digital music is a great opportunity to combine scientific and artistic mindsets, and is as rewarding as it is challenging.

Students will learn to use professional recording, mixing and sequencing technology - both hardware and software - and discover the fascinating history of electronic music. 

We can deliver a session as an introduction to some of the main concepts to inspire individual experimentation, or work with you to co-design a programme of weekly sessions to maximise the potential for group development and the production of finished recordings at the end of term.

What's involved? 

Sessions can be tailored according to your needs, but typically include some or all of the following elements:

  • Computer music production: sequencing, arrangement, mixing and use of effects
  • Creative use of synthesizers and electronic instruments
  • Multitrack recording - both in a studio and on location
  • DJing skills - turn-tabling and mixing
  • Theory - including the history of electronic music

What's more?

If your students are aged 12 or older and want to take their skills and enthusiasm to the next level, why not tell them about our Friday Night Project sessions, where they can socialise with other electronic music makers and get involved in our events.

We know that this is an area that many teachers are not confident about delivering, not least because technology and techniques can become obsolete quite quickly.  If you'd like to discuss training on a one-to-one or group basis, please get in touch.  Have a look at our teacher training area for more information on our development opportunities.
