We offer digital music education packages for schools.

iPad and GarageBand courses

We offer iPad and GarageBand courses for a whole class of primary or secondary school pupils. The course is designed to teach pupils how to create, compose, record, and produce music on an iPad using GarageBand.

We can tailor the course to primary school children as an introduction to digital music creation.

We can also tailor the course as a more in-depth music production and composition support course for those in high school, and GCSE and A-Level pupils.

You can book the course as a:

  • full day workshop,
  • half day workshop,
  • 5 week beginner course (1 hour per week), or
  • ongoing termly.

This course has been hugely popular with both staff and pupils.

GCSE, BTEC, and A Level support

We understand that not all schools have the equipment or resources to record and film pupils’ composition and performance coursework.

You can book our multimedia studio in Chapter Arts Centre for this purpose.

We can also visit your school as we have a number of specialist music tech teachers who can come and support you and your pupils in the classroom. This costs £42 per hour.

Digital music and it staff training

We offer dedicated digital music and IT training for teachers and staff.

This can be at introductory level using an iPad and basic music and video production apps such as GarageBand and iMovies. This could also be a more in-depth look at music tech, recording, and production.

Please contact us to discuss your staff training needs.
