Sonic PI – A free twilight training session for secondary teachers

In this free session we will cover some basic techniques that will help students create and perform music, develop their listening skills and allow them to explore a range of musical concepts appropriate to KS3/4 study.

Sonic PI is an easy to use and much more intuitive program. It is aimed at those new to computer programming, but powerful enough to generate really sophisticated music.  The fact that it is free and accessible on all platforms makes it an even more attractive proposition.

Part of the stimulus for development was to stake a claim for music in the new computing curriculum for schools, with its emphasis on computer programming as an important digital skill. Students are already finding this an utterly engaging way to make music, that also makes strong connections with their musical cultures and helps them develop broader and deeper levels of musical understanding.
