How can I have a Music technology course Delivered in my Area?

Published: Tue September 20, 2005  News Feed

Dolphin’s Music Technology Course is suitable for music teachers teaching key stage 3, 4 and 5 as well as people involved in youth or community work where there is a desire to offer music production projects. The course is designed to prepare delegates for delivering exciting, state-of-the-art Music Technology as part of their curriculum or project work. KS3, 4 [including GSCE and vocational courses] and post 16 [including AS and A Level Music Technology] will on this course be explored in detail as well as community adult, Higher Education and project work. Delegates from primary schools are welcome to both courses and should find the topics covered useful.

The demonstrator for the Course is Greg Parker, a PGCE qualified teacher employed at Gladesmore Community School and the Haringey City Learning Centre in Tottenham, London. He has set up and delivers both GCSE and A-Level Music Technology courses at the schools and has been an integral part of establishing Haringey CLC as a leading Music Technology educational source. Greg is also consultant to among others Imperial College London and has helped the university to set up a successful Music Technology suite in which he now delivers a programme of evening courses.

Greg has developed hugely popular Music Technology provision at Gladesmore School and the CLC offering short schemes in sequencing and song writing at KS3; GCSE composition and recording, plus the NCFE Music Technology vocational course at KS4; AS and A2 Music Technology in the Sixth Form as well as an extensive range of DJing and Music Technology projects for all age ranges. Greg also delivers Music Technology for adult learners at the CLC in the evenings. Dolphin are therefore very happy that Greg has agreed to team up with us to offer these courses to our schools.

Here is an example of the two-day course that we currently deliver:

Day 1 - For the most part day you will be exploring the basics of MIDI sequencing and audio recording, editing and arranging using Propellerheads’ Reason virtual studio and Steinberg’s Cubase. These will be the main applications covered although in day two demonstrations of alternative software will be included.

  • Session 6 - Q & A and 1-on-1 Tuition

Day 2 - Day two develops your knowledge on music technology with an exploration of digital recording technology. How music technology can be utilised in the classroom will be covered. There is also an opportunity to ‘have a go’ with MIDI sequencing in Reason.

  • Session 1 - Recap of Day One
