Music Technology

I've always loved to see technology being used as a tool for making music. No matter how 'musical' you think you are, or aren't, technology is one of the methods that can enable anyone to create and experience making music. 

Year 7 have been using USB keyboards connected to MacBooks to record their own compositions. Although I haven't heard the results yet, they all seemed to be totally absorbed in the music making process, and Mr Paul was very pleased with what they have achieved so far. 

Yr8 Animate

A whole day of animation, where teams battled it out to make the best advertisement using their skills in Stop-Motion animation. To get it right, teams had to consider the story, lighting, frame rates, props, characterisation, editing, sound effects, music, titles and much much more. 

This team chose to make a box of Lego come to life.
