Play is the first in a series of workshops exploring music making and technology with children. Organised by SONA we want to introduce children to easy access digital tech to stimulate their natural creativity.

Young participants will build tunes using the GarageBand app for the iPad. The session will fit beginners who have never used an iPad before as well as experienced GarageBand DJs who want to unlock even more of their potential.

We will play with drum beats and instrumental loops, and talk about how to fit these sounds together, we will look at structure and genre, and work together to create your own pop songs.

Have a listen to how the children got on! Here are the tracks made during the workshop:
