The Classroom Resource Pack has been created to help school teachers around the world to teach Music in the classroom using modern computer music technology.
Typically the Music curriculum is based on the fundamental activities of performing, composing and listening, and schools around the world today adopt a traditional approach to the teaching and learning of these fundamental skills.
Computer music technology is fast becoming an essential element of the 21st Century school music curriculum. It is itself a highly effective tool to nurture those same fundamental skills of performing, composing and listening but additionally provides the opportunity for learning discrete recording, sequencing and production skills. Students thereby study music with a contemporary perspective reflecting a real world technology context.
This approach poses a significant challenge for many teachers. Unfamiliarity and lack of experience with the technologies, combined with a lack of time and resources to satisfactorily produce a scheme of work and range of lesson materials, are the biggest challenges. Additionally it is the time to think, the time to prepare, to create, or to produce classroom teaching materials that are precisely the resources that teachers simply do not have. And this is exactly what we give them with the Classroom Resource Pack!
Therefore the Classroom Resource Pack answers the needs of teachers the world over by giving them a huge range of pre-prepared learning activities which can be selected by the teacher and either used in part and inserted into their existing scheme of work, or used in its entirety to form the basis for a brand new programme of study.
The CRPs units of study or learning activities (or LAs) are arranged into collective themes or topics called Projects and provided at graduated difficulty levels. These difficulty levels have been developed with the intention of teaching children between the ages of 11 to 18. The LAs are however mainly focused towards the elementary to intermediate levels, allowing the teacher to draw upon the widest range of resources to satisfy the majority of students.
Last, but not least, the Classroom Resource Pack is of course based on the integral use of Cubase 4 or Cubase Studio 4, arguably the most widespread, easy to use, and professional music composition and production software package available today. It is also one of the most commonly used applications in the study of music and music technology in education, and therefore provides both teacher and student the confidence of building a solid foundation with learning technical and practical skills which have real world value and longevity.
