Gigajam&Yamaha will be launching their Music Classroom for the Future education solutions during the BETT show at Olympia in January 2010. BETT is the world’s largest ICT in education show and will be visited by over 27,000 delegates involved in education.
Brian Greene, Managing Director of Gigajam said, “Gigajam&Yamaha have shared a vision that all children can have the chance to experience learning a musical instrument over a sustained period. We have been advocating, through the government’s Music Manifesto,that increasing participation requires a technological solution to support and enhance the existing methods of delivering musical instrument tuition.
We believe that 100% participation is possible with Gigajam&Yamaha – music instrument tuition through eLearning – and that the focus now needs to be turned towards young people in secondary education, ensuring that programmes are progressive, sustained and provide continual assessment.”
John Hillier, Commercial Director of Gigajam said, “This year we are heavily focused on Local Authorities, Schools and Academies who our looking at transforming learning for the creative arts through the use of technology.”
Gigajam will be joined on stand by Yamaha ‘s much respected Education Manager Bill Martin, together with David Cooper, Director of One Man Band, Gigajam’s appointed Yamaha supplier. To demonstrate Gigajam’s use in UK schools music teachers Ian Wright, Head of Music at Tiverton High School and Sean Ashmore, Head of Music at Pleckgate High School will be visiting the stand to demonstrate their schools’ work. Both schools are Gigajam Accredited Interactive Music Schools and will be presenting their ideas on harnessing technology and how it has increased participation and engagement in music.
