WHOLE-CLASS MUSIC TECH
Capture your KS2 and KS3 students’ interest and engagement with music with a 10- or 20- week programme of whole class music technology using iPads.
The iPad is a fantastic tool for making music, both for students who may not consider themselves to be musical, as well as for those who are keen to stretch their horizons musically and creatively.
Our 10-week programme uses iPads, keyboards, music apps and vocals to compose and record music. All equipment is provided.
The programme may also be run as an afterschool club – we have piloted this approach successfully in Archway School (this must be made free to students and must reach an equivalent of a full class of students, as a condition of our current funding).

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
See what people have to say about their experience of working with us.
“The year 6 children from Chesterton Primary School, Cirencester, had a wonderful time combining music and technology. Even our most reluctant musicians are finding out about time signatures, chords and composition as they enjoyed exploring GarageBand on the iPad.”
Sue Dearsley, class 6 teacher, Chesterton Primary School.
“It achieved all we wanted it to: understanding of musical concepts as well as composition – often the hardest thing to deliver. It was successful too in engaging ALL pupils through music. We have a few in year 5 that have behavioural issues, ADHD, family members with mental health problems- so they find concentration and engagement really hard, but they were completely. I think it has changed their perception of themselves, how they feel about music and what they can achieve.”
Diane Bainbridge, Headteacher, Whiteshill Primary (nr Stroud).
