Making a Music Track – Interactive Workshop – 27th March ’24 12:15pm Session (Stage 2, Stage 3)

  27-Mar-2024      12:15PM
Live Event

Fusing technology & music, students will develop their music-making skills while collaborating with a live artist to express themselves musically.


In this live workshop, students will work with our facilitator to explore music skills and techniques to express an idea or story.

Students will develop aural skills by exploring and recognising elements of music such as dynamics and rhythm. They will be invited to discuss the purpose and meanings behind music and then, collaborate with the facilitator to create their own compositions.

Through recording of sounds in their environment, pre-recorded sounds and learning some beatboxing skills, students will create and organise a series of sounds to express their story.

Using a smart phone or other digital device, students can capture their compositions and learn how to use technology to enhance their compositions.


BROUGHT TO YOU BY: Sydney Opera House
