Get Creative: Contemporary Music In The Curriculum
About this event
Build your confidence bringing contemporary music styles and some DIY producer skills into your classroom practice. With this webinar brought to you by Digit Music and RSL Awards.
We know that many young people are making music at home, but are not connecting their passion for music to curriculum learning and gaining music qualifications.
In this session we’ll be giving top tips from industry and education professionals, classroom activities and free professional audio samples to boost your confidence exploring Drill Music and Digital Audio workstations in the classroom with your students.
We’ll hear from Tony Nwachukwu, Music Producer, DJ, lecturer and founder of CDR (Create Define, Release) whose work supports emerging artists and producers. Tony’s groundbreaking programme extends to working in schools where his team run MPC (Music Producer Clubs). He’ll be giving an overview of the programme and some takeaway tips to engage your students.
Next, Digit Music will be giving you the building blocks to explore Drill in your classroom session. Attendees will receive a set of free, professional samples from our label and a classroom activity to get you students sounding incredible fast.
