What our Schools Say

‘Working with Ben from Transformance Music was a wonderful experience for myself and my students. He helped create and demo the curriculum for our song lab, a pilot after- school  songwriting club on ipads. Through Ben’s  lessons and projects, my students are learning music, establishing collaborative partnerships, and excelling in creativity and critical thinking skills. Thanks Ben- looking forward to our future work together!!’
Courtney Castro, RtI2 Teacher, Serrano Elementary School, Orange County, California
‘The training was informative, well presented, and provided me with plentiful ideas to take back to the classroom for projects large and small’
Milton Keynes Music Hub
‘The whole day’s session was really well paced and I felt that you really helped me understand how the iPads could be used to help the children explore composition in a really meaningful way. Your explanation about finding a rhythm, harmony and melody, with a simple 8-bar structure using GarageBand was powerfully simple and clever, giving the children complete empowerment to create songs that sound very sophisticated. I no longer feel terrified about how to use GarageBand in a classroom setting.’
