I’m super excited to have been given the opportunity to share these educational resources on Ableton.com as part of their Ableton for the Classroom initiative.

Over the last couple of years I have been working with the Ableton Education team to develop and write a series of classroom projects that focus on music learning using Ableton Live and music technology.

There are currently four classroom projects on offer: First Steps with Ableton Live, Making music from Found Sounds, Creating a Soundtrack and The Art of the Mashup.

Each project has lesson plans, curated resources, Ableton Live sets, guides and worksheets.

I hope these resources end up being of value to music teachers and I am super-humbled to know that they are freely available in six languages to any music teachers that want to use, change and develop them in their own classroom.

I recently sat down (over zoom) with James Jennings to do this interview about my new “Cinematic Rhythms” course for Melodics, as well as a little about my musical past and things that have shaped my musical path.

If you’re unfamiliar with Melodics, it’s a Music training app for Keys, Pads and Drums. Available for both computer and iOS.

Check it out @Melodics
