Music Making

In this programme, students get to explore their musical ability by creating multi-layered pieces of music using existing samples and sound loops. They’ll flex their creative muscles experimenting with splicing, remixing, and changing sound to create a piece of music they can download to play at home. No previous music knowledge is required, just an ear for having fun and being creative!

Music Making is Capital E’s most popular and longest-running education programme where students engage in creative risk-taking and decision making and collaboration. They’ll also leave with new skills in digital technology and overall increased confidence in digital literacy skills.

Music Making also supports the following curriculum links:

Music Arts Level 1-8

“Explore and express sounds and musical ideas, drawing on personal experience, listening, and imagination.”

Key Competencies

• Thinking
• Managing Self
• Using Language, Symbols and Text

Really positive experience. The students were all engaged for the nearly two hour session and didn't want it to end.

My visit to Capital E was really great. I have many friends who produce music on their computers but I’ve never tried to do so myself. After this session however, I am definitely going to download Sony’s Acid when I get home. Overall great experience and a great teacher.
