An exciting and creative workshop using GarageBand and iPads to create music.
The iMusic workshop comprises:
The half day can be split into two ‘taster’ sessions for two classes or run as a more extensive half day session for one group
GarageBand is a software application for Apple computers allowing users to create music. A GarageBand app is available for iPad and iPhone for mobile music making.
The Smart Touch instruments in GarageBand are designed to let non-musicians make music with almost instant success. It works by supplementing the music played with related chords and notes that work well together. A variety of guitars, bass guitars, keyboards and drum kits are available to explore and create a unique sound.
The Recording Studio in GarageBand allows users to combine tracks recorded using the Smart Touch instruments. Each track can be edited and loops can be created, tracks can be layered to create a piece of music. Even short samples using Smart Sample can be added to the piece of music to make it truly unique.
During the session, students will have experienced using the Smart Instruments, Sampler and Recording Studio to create a short mixed music track which can be played as an audio track.
This workshop is aimed at KS2 pupils, the pupils will be using their school iPads so they can further develop their piece of music is school.
