Course description
Suitable for both absolute beginners and confident music technologists, this one day course provides a hands-on, practical introduction to the extraordinary potential of the iPad as a tool for songwriting and composition. You will try out methods that allow students of all abilities to access multiple instruments and create exciting, original compositions whilst developing their theoretical knowledge in line with the NC. We will also explore improvisation, sampling, cross-curricular tasks, group performance (including 'iPad Bands'), using the iPad as a tool to provide equal access for SEN/D pupils, and assessment strategies. Each delegate will receive a copy of the complete 'Teaching Music with Garageband for iPad' textbook, and be fully resourced to take their learning into the classroom.

This course is ideal for Secondary Heads of Music, Music Coordinators in Primary and SEND schools and classroom teachers.
