This term in computing lessons, Year 6 have been given a unique opportunity to design and create musical content by exploring Ableton Live, an electronic music software package that allows the user to make any kind of music. As part of Ableton’s drive to get more girls into electronic music, they sent talented artist, Rachel K Collier, to do an exciting live performance of her music using Ableton Live. The girls were then able to remix one of Rachel’s tracks by manipulating samples using Ableton Live software.
The girls have learnt amazing new IT skills, some of them will have tapped into an unknown interest or talent, and they have all been inspired and motivated by a talented female role model.
Look out for some of their pieces in the coming weeks.
