Technology makes instrumental learning in the classroom possible

It may not be specified in the National Curriculum that students should learn how to play a musical instrument but few would disagree that, if possible, it would help students engage more deeply in music making.

Noise, space, equipment and specialist knowledge are some of the key reasons why teaching instrumental skills in class has been so difficult historically.


Technology, though, can play a huge role in supporting the classroom teacher make instrumental learning in class possible, easy and fun. Gigajam was designed to be delivered so that pupils could experience what it is like to learn one to one, whilst in a class group. It also encourages students to come together and play and perform live, as well as equip them with the skills they need to compose and record.
