The elearning partnership with Gigajam and Yamaha was launched at BETT in January 2010 and is the perfect partnership of; Gigajam’s digital curriculum for the guitar, bass, keyboard and drums and Yamaha’s great range of portable and affordable MIDI instruments.
The concept of creating new musicians with the digital curriculum and interactive musical instruments, means that students, in the classroom can Learn to Play. They can then Perform in a Band by applying their skills to playing live . The next step is to then take the developing musical competence to compose & record which is where Steinberg’s unqiue suite of desktop recording applications come in.
The studio environment we have created comprises of a downloadable version of Steinberg’s Sequel 2 which can be downloaded and installed and used freely for up to 45 days.
In addition to the free trial download, Steinberg have provided 8 music technology tutorials to help you understand how to get the most from recording and composing with Sequel. The list of tutorials available are as follows:
