Give Me a Beat!

Last week, 8th graders started exploring GarageBand on the iPad as the next tool that we will use for a task in Digital Literacy class.  Everybody was just hyped as they started playing the different instruments, and some started experimenting in mixing up sounds for a track.

This week, we begin with the lessons on how to go about creating a beat, or mixing up beats, to create a track. The lesson was based on a video tutorial on YouTube. I only demonstrated the beginning of the tutorial, and as the students were already excited to try it on their own, I gave the link to the tutorial video and challenged them to come up with the same music that was created on the video.

Here are some examples of the music created in class.

If for some reason it doesn’t play, please listen to the track from here. 

Szachii L.

If for some reason it doesn’t play, please listen to the track from here.

John T.

If for some reason it doesn’t play, please listen to the track from here.
