Both Matt and Martin contributed to four ‘classroom projects’ – comprehensive and engaging music teaching resources that are freely available on ableton.com as part of the Ableton for the Classroom Initiative which includes free copies of Ableton Live 11. In this workshop, Matt will delve into these classroom projects, explaining their intention and development. He will then demonstrate some of the techniques used in the projects and explain how he has used them to engage his students in music learning, recording, composition and performance. Martin will provide NZ curriculum and assessment context for effectively integrating Ableton Live in your classroom.
