| Using Technology to Support a Music Curriculum|
The newsletter this month includes some ideas that are in keeping with the theme of providing enriching educational opportunities for young people through music. Although such opportunities can come, for example, through simply playing an instrument we are keen at Dolphin Music to shed some light on the opportunities that are available through the use of music technology.
Positive Feedback on Dolphin's Educational Courses
I attended the Dolphin music two day training course in Liverpool last week. I would just like to let you know how good it was. Everything about the course was brilliant.
Portable Ableton Live System
As this is our first newsletter it falls to me to start the ball rolling with an article about some cool kit and how I’ve been using it. Between finishing at the end of the academic year in July and starting work here at Dolphin I have been away to Australia and SE Asia DJing with Ableton Live. I travelled with my trusted Inta-Audio music laptop, M-Audio FW Audiophile soundcard, Novation Remote 25 MIDI controller and loads of MP3s. That’s a lot of kit to be carrying around on planes, boats and ‘Tuk-Tuks’ you might say – but it’s better than carrying a flight-case or two of records I can tell you!
Changes at Dolphin Education
One of the main changes that will be happening at Dolphin Music for education customers is our web site. We’re going to change the structure and content so as to simplify the process of browsing for products and as mentioned above offer helpful guides about technology and equipment.
Teacher Training Courses in Liverpool and London
As you may know Dolphin Music offers courses of training for teachers who want to learn about music technology and its application in an educational context. The course is two days in length and covers a range of topics, focussing on relevant equipment, Cubase and Reason [as the two most popular educational software packages] but extending to cover other systems and looking at practical educational application.
Competition and user submissions to web site help guides info
As part of our developing education services we would like to invite our customers to contribute to our newsletter and helpful guide pages.
