Music and Video
In terms of the creative school curriculum music and video subjects are key. Software has shaped modern music and video lessons and as it’s now so accessible, incorporating it into the syllabus is a no brainer.
Software has broadened the horizons of education in creative subjects, such as music, in more ways than anyone could have imagined. Whether the music software brings out a student’s inner virtuoso or simply gives them a platform to express themselves, they are learning quicker and more efficiently than reading from textbooks. When it works, music software is a key tool for helping students to understand music in terms of sound and structure and may lead to a world of creative expression that may otherwise not have been discovered.
Music software includes a variety of applications, ranging from audio programmes that enable students to train their ears to pitch, rhythm, chords, scales and tuning, to theory tools that can be used by students of all ages and music ability to learn how to read sheet music and understand intervals. Whatever stage a student is at, there’s an application to assist in music production.
However, before buying software, it’s important to know which features are necessary for the school, college or higher education facility. Some music software might contain features that are too advanced or may miss out on some features that cannot be lived without.
In any educational setting, the primary focus of software should be on usability. Professional video tools may be something to aspire to once the basics have been learnt but in order to keep a student engaged and during the early stages of learning video production a software must be easy to get to grips with and use. However, there must also be a balance of easy to use and feature rich.
Students may use video production software to demonstrate their learning, make tutorials, express their creativity and much more. If the software doesn’t allow them the flexibility and features, they need to create these videos, they may become disengaged.
The same applies to teachers wanting to make creative videos as a teaching aid to use in lessons. They may not want to spend hours creating the video but there must be enough features to enable them to add their own creative flair.
