Gigajam add Steinberg Sequel 2 in new online music technology studio

Gigajam have added ‘The studio’ to its Online Music School. The Studio is designed to support the use of music technology in school as part of Gigajam’s vision of the Music Classroom for the Future.

 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.

eLearning partnership

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.
