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.

The health and safety of our visitors and staff is very important to us so we continue to follow Ministry of Health advice and guidelines around physical distancing, hygiene, visitor numbers and contact tracing. All visitors are asked to stay home if they are feeling unwell, to maintain physical distancing while in Capital E and are required to complete contract tracing upon entering via the NZ COVID Tracer app or manually. We’ll continue to monitor advice from the Wellington City Council and Ministry of Health and will share updates here and on social media.

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

Teacher, Wairarapa

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.

      Kia ora! Thanks for getting in touch. If you’re looking for the songs you and your class created on the day, check out our downloads page. You can find the St Claudine Thevenet School folders by clicking through MediaLab and OnTV –> 2021 –> 02-February.

      If you’re looking for an app to continue making songs with, check out the options above under Downloadable Resources. Or give Soundtrap a try to get straight into it – it works great on smartphones, tablets, laptops, PCs – all you need is an internet connection and you’re good to go!
