Lexi, Daniel and Igor
Lexi, Daniel and Igor took part in the Music/Mobile Tech project, working together as a group to compose their final piece of music. Together, they used their video blog as an opportunity to develop their confidence and communication, reflecting on what they had learnt each week. The huge progress that came as a result has been recognised by their session leader, school and families. They're determined to carry on what they have been learning now the project is over.
"We learnt lots of new skills — constructing, deconstructing, jumps and drops — arranging the music. We did not give up! It was really hard, but eventually we were successful."
"We learnt not to be shy. We watched our video blogs each week so we knew what to do next to make our music better."
"I'm going to download GarageBand at home and use that more!"
"Molly learned a lot from the exploration of the different music apps on the iPad. She wrote music and sang on her final piece which was a remarkable and impressive achievement."
— Setting Staff at Waves
Amy attended the Music/Mobile Tech project at Waves, and her final piece was created to a brief set by the New Carnival Company: to compose a piece of music inspired by an old, disused railway line on the Isle of Wight. Amy used sampling, sequencing and live performance, bringing together apps, sounds and instruments in GarageBand to create her song.
"I built on the skills I had, playing the piano, and learnt how to bring that on to the iPad. I would never have made something like this before — it is weird, but great. The project was really awesome!
