Teacher Training in Music Technology Workshops

Integrating Composition and MIDI/Music Technology to foster a creative environment

At St Andrew’s College we have developed a great culture of having students push themselves in composition because they love the creative process, not just to ‘bank’ credits. Music technology is an integral part of helping students become self-motivated. Using MIDI technology, recording interfaces and their mixing skills students are able to produce high quality tracks as you can hear on Spotify.



  • introducing junior students to the compositional process

  • using ‘basic’ recording/composition software such as Soundtrap, Bandlab & GarageBand with junior classes

  • options for recording/composition software at senior levels (Ableton Live Intro, Reaper, Logic)

  • designing group collaborative tasks

  • creating a positive culture of creativity

  • integrating Music Technology and 'Radio' Unit Standards to create a course that caters for all learners
