“…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.”

We offer comprehensive training programme for individual teachers, whole schools, Music Education Hubs, school districts and arts organisations.
Our Teaching Music with iPads training provides everything you need to deliver high-impact composition and performance projects using iPads. Over the course of the day, we will explore tasks that develop musicianship and music theory through structured composition and improvisation tasks. Activities will be based on best practice when using tablet technology to teach music, with clear links to the National Curriculum and a strong cross-curricular emphasis. The course is designed for both specialist and non-specialist musicians at KS 1 – 3, including those who have never touched an iPad before! All courses include a copy of the new ‘Garageband for Key Stage 2/3’, a complete teaching resource.
The day will be led by Transformance Music’s Lead Musician and author of Teaching Music with Garageband for iPad, Ben Sellers. Lunch and refreshments are included.
“informative, well presented, and provided me with plentiful ideas to take to the classroom for projects large and small”

“I’ve come away from the day determined to raise my game. The potential that iPads have is enormous and I have just been paddling in the shallows! My first change is instead of using recorded tracks for my year 6 hip hop project we are going to make our own backing tracks to practise our rapping.”
