Music technology offers a different set of opportunities than traditional music making:
Online platforms, such as Zoom can host music therapy sessions, offering inclusion for those who want assistance at home, especially those isolated during the coronavirus lockdown at home or in a care facility.
Apps are a great way to make music in an accessible and interactive way. Apps can be used as traditional instruments, to make beats and to record songs. Music making in your pocket!
DAWs such as GarageBand and Ableton Live can be used for recording, production, mixing, mastering and live performance.
Digital music therapy
Need help getting set up?
Amped music therapy is running 1-2-1 training, online workshops and CPD training for you
or the staff at your organisation.
The training troubleshoots your own personal challenges and barriers to using technology and works with you to find the best technological environment for your users, who might need more home support to engage. By training staff, participants will have more success connecting with others safely online and in turn will decrease isolation and increase the feeling of being connected and happier at home. By being tech-savvy, you will have more reach to outside support services such as therapies and creative groups who are currently working online.
AMPED uses Zoom to run music therapy sessions when face to face sessions are inaccessible. It has been especially useful for children, young people and adults who have been socially isolated due to the pandemic.
Digital Music Sessions
AMPED offers digital music sessions for people interested in making electronic music, recording, loops, drums, effects, learning a range of new skills. The main goal is to set-up and learn with the view to make music independently at home.
AMPED offers online Ableton Live music technology sessions using Ableton live 10 - face-to-face or via ZOOM. Tried and tested, these session open music technology to everyone in an accessible and exciting way.
