We have had the pleasure of supporting the music curriculum at Whitburn Village Primary and East Boldon Junior School. Students took part in one of our newest workshop projects called 'Cover Song'. We analyse, evaluate then recreate a popular song using digital instruments. A fun and contemporary approach to music education can be found in Garageband's touch software.

Learn to play “Can’t Stop the Feeling”  by Justin Timberlake. Music Hands created this short series breaking the song into bitesize chunks, making it even easier to recreate with a group of pupils. Each episode studies one part of the songs form. When you have completed the series you will be able to play the full arrangement and Garageband like a boss!

 

Preview the syllabus for Vol. 2 “Simple Arrangement”. Vol 2. is a 6 session project focused on composing using the music loops stored within Garageband. Explore diverse musical genres and concepts such as song-form with these super high quality pre-recorded samples.
