Wiltshire Music Connect has arranged for the brilliant Conductive Music to bring STEAM workshops to Wiltshire schools again in 2023.

Using a multi-disciplinary approach, Conductive Music teaches pupils how to design, code, compose and perform with custom-made, digital musical instruments.

For the 4th year running Wiltshire Music Connect will be subsidising the cost of workshops for a small number of Wiltshire schools, bringing the cost of two days of workshops down from £500 to just £100.

If you would like to find out more about Conductive Music workshops, then why not attend our free 45 minute Zoom ‘taster’ session for teachers on Wednesday 8 June at 4pm. The Conductive Music Team will explain their approach and demonstrate their learning platform.

After the taster session, Wiltshire schools that would like to have the subsidised workshops next year (March 2023) can make an expression of interest.

What do other schools say about Conductive Music:

“The workshop was a fantastic way of teaching children of all abilities music and science. It enabled them to see how electricity works and to see a different side of music. They left the workshop feeling really inspired! A brilliant experience.”

“The workshop consisted of combining Music and Technology, as well as making other strong links across the curriculum: some of the history of Music & Technology and Mathematical coding. Children were each given a ‘microbit’ which they could connect to their laptops via a USB. The children were then taught how to code the ‘microbit’ via an online app and this enabled them to make their own music which could be played through the chip.”

“The children were engrossed from the first moment and it was total awe and wonder for them. They learned a huge amount about electricity, music and the power of coding. A fabulous session which I would thoroughly recommend.”
