Materials

Hello and welcome to our course!

In these 10 videos, Jack will guide you through lots of innovative ways to create digital music. We chose SoundTrap, a free music software, so you can follow on your laptop or desktop, or download the app version for your tablet and even a phone!

Jack's lessons cover the basics of Digital Audio Workstations (DAW), chord progressions, how to 'draw' music, create a soundtrack, set words to music, customise a synthesizer, use and credit samples, and remix MIDI tracks.

This course has been designed with the National Curriculum for Years 7 and 8 at its core (11, 12, 13 year olds), but absolutely everybody is welcome and can benefit from this, as we start from scratch!!
