Dear fellow Educator,

Imagine a music education system that provides each and every young person with their own personalised

learning path, that matches their particular learning style, interests and motivation. A system where no child has

to feel that they are failing because they are struggling to learn. Where they don’t feel bad because they do not fit in with the norm. A system that instead, recognises and celebrates their creative genius and their uniqueness. An environment that creates true lifelong learners and creatives, who want to be musicians!

Imagine if you were part of creating that education revolution with us…

Well now you can be!

  1. If music in schools is to become more relevant, creative and engaging to young people then technology and the music they listen to, has to play a far greater role than it currently does.
  2. Music in Schools (Music Education) is becoming increasingly outdated and irrelevant to the young people of today.
  3. As music teachers in the digital age we have a responsibility to acquire the new skills and knowledge demanded by ever evolving technology. If we don’t we cannot offer a meaningful, accessible and inclusive musical education.

Hello Garageband

This eight session project is the first step in your iPad songwriting journey. Consider the ‘interlocking dimensions of music’ in the context of composition, improvisation and production. Beginning with drums, each lesson adds new layers to the composition, including sung lyrics, to create a composition every student will be proud of.

Theme & Variation

This seven session project offers more advanced songwriting techniques, and includes a deeper exploration of harmony, advanced soloing, and an extended lyric writing element.

Chinese Music

Introduce your pupils to traditional Chinese instrumental music with the groundbreaking new Chinese virtual instruments on Garageband. Over four sessions, students will create programme music, improvise using the pipa and erhu instruments and develop a class performance with a luogu percussion ensemble! Suitable for ages 9-14.

Hip-Hop

Over five sessions, exploring the history and fundamental elements of hip hop music – sampling, rapping, special effects, synthesisers – through the lens of composition. An optional two session ensemble project adds powerful opportunities for performance.

A Message To You Rudy

This two session project works as an alternative introduction to GarageBand for your students. We consider the relationship between ska and reggae before working in small ensembles to create high-impact performances. In addition, the structure of the project, with everyone learning all the parts before taking on a specific role, as well as the two extensions (soloing and re-writing lyrics), can be used to cover any song. This one has been chosen for its simplicity, fun groove, and potential for soloing over. The two key learning outcomes here are the ability to play off-beats and the ability to lock together two different melody lines within a chord pattern.

12 Bar Blues

This two session project is a great opportunity to combine iPads and acoustic instruments, with the key learning outcomes focused on constructing cohesive solos.This composition can be tackled as part of a wider curriculum topic (slavery, migration, civil rights).

Soundtrack to a Music Video

This five session project sees students creating short films and with accompanying soundtracks. It really brings out the creative side of our students, and the videos created are often very impressive and can be shared with parents online.Speaking of working across the curriculum, creating music videos gives us a number of opportunities to view another subject from a new angle. Our film could dramatise a moment from history or the evolution of a caterpillar into a butterfly.

The Science of Music

This project contains a series of single session exercises that use Garageband to explore various scientific phenomena – frequency, soundwaves, harmonics, reverb.

GARAGEBAND Version 1: EL GRANDE

This composition project is intended as a culmination of all the composition work done so far. It gives pupils a framework within which they are free to compose according their own interests and abilities, working through a flow diagram with various options for content creation. Each stage of the flow diagram has a suggested process that promotes our key musical learning outcomes, as well as other processes that appear elsewhere in the book. It adheres to the typical pop song form, complete with bridge/middle eight and should be seen as an opportunity to create something that would not seem out of place in the Top 40. We have also successfully used this method with adults.

And this is just the start. More content added every month from experts in teaching, technology, performing, training, workshops and resource creation. Don’t miss out on the benefits of this extraordinary Special Offer – Never to be repeated. Go to the “VIP Special” tab at the top of the page.

GarageBand Version 1: A MUSICAL SCENE

This project is focused on developing an understanding of harmony, and introduces two key aspects of songwriting: using minor and major chords and generating vocals.

We also explore three of the most powerful features of GarageBand: the Smart Strings, which provide beautiful string arrangements that we can manipulate to suit our needs; the Arpeggiator and the Sampler. We will use all three to create a soundscape and build a musical story.
