‘Is it Calvin Harris or is it Callum?’ said Callum as he listened back to his recording project on headphones. He didn’t realise that the rest of us in the classroom could hear him. Obviously we all laughed, but there was something really special that we all shared in his pride about what he has achieved.
In the middle of last term we were invited to build on our partnership with Craigroyston Community High School by delivering a Digital Music course to the S4s. The whole thing has been a reminder that even the most simple creative ideas can build into amazing things.
Working in partnership with Rachel Ponte, one of the music teachers at Craigroyston, we have developed a year long Digital Music course aimed at keeping disengaged students interested and creative in the classroom and it seems to be working!
