Start off by watching this short video. The competition accepts entries from October 31st to March 5th 2017 and we invite you to start the Lesson Plans and Videos from today!
Entry is absolutely free, and on entering you will receive a welcome pack, lesson plans and a link to the tutorial videos.
How long is the Challenge and when is the deadline?
The project is composed of 6 x one hour lessons (5 x one hour lessons for those without the ‘Live Loops’ feature). You can complete them over several weeks, several days, or even several hours! All entries must be uploaded by
17th December 5th March 2017 (Note: Extended deadline for entries)
What age is the competition suitable for?
9-15 year olds
My class only has one/a few iPads. Can I still take part?
Absolutely. Show the tutorial videos on your class whiteboard and complete the challenge as a class!
Help! I can’t find the Live Loops on Garageband!
Some older iPads don’t support the Live Loops function. However, we have prepared an alternative project that does not use Live Loops, available for download after you enter the competition.
My school is outside the UK. Can I still take part?
Yes. One of the most exciting aspects of the project is that pupils will be able to listen to their peers’ compositions from around the world.
I can’t complete the challenge until next term. Can I still take part?
You won’t be able to enter the competition, but the lesson plans will be available as part of our upcoming teaching resources, ‘Garageband for KS2’ and ‘Garageband for KS3’.
