Nick Haines Courses for Teachers

Composition projects using music technology

This course explores many aspects of creative music making. Although composition is an essential element in the Music Syllabus, it can prove to be one of the most difficult to teach.

Music technology has advanced tremendously over the last few years with the advent of computers, sequencers, synthesizers and all things MIDI. This equipment can help enormously in creating the right conditions for young people to compose their own compositions.

This course endeavours to take a selection of the latest Music Technology and utilise it in composition projects within the classroom.

“Without the Keyboard Laboratory it would be extremely difficult to teach efficiently in a room full of keyboards playing out loud.

With the keyboard laboratory our students can get on with their work without interruption and we can monitor them easily and provide feedback easily, I don’t know how we would cope without it.
