NOW TAKING school workshop BOOKINGS FOR 2019

Bookings are now open for our 2019 workshop program for primary schools across Adelaide (southern, central and western suburbs). Get in early to secure your preferred timeslot!

 
Simon worked with our Year 7 students to produce a song for graduation. The students were given the opportunity to write the song lyrics and reflect on the transition of moving from primary school into high school. Each student was given a part to work on within the song. Our students were very enthusiastic about working with Simon each week and were thrilled with the final product. Simon was encouraging and actively listened to the ideas put forth by the students. They can’t wait to play the song to their family and friends on graduation night.

Create an original graduation song

Students work together to write and record an original class song using Garageband. As well as learning about the technical side of audio recording and having a go at building song structures in electronic music, the lyric writing process around the theme of graduation helps students work through their feelings about making the transition to high school.

The sessions will cover:

  • An introduction to the song writing and recording process to identify the key parts of the song that will be created (including style, theme and audience)
  • Working with electronic drums, bass and other instrument loops to build an arrangement
  • Writing song lyrics and rehearsing vocals
  • Recording vocals
  • Applying effects and mixing the finished song

Fee Structure

One class (up to 32 students): $3250 (+GST). This includes 10 sessions (90 mins each, once a week) working with small groups across a school term.

Two classes: $5500 (+GST). Inclusions as described above, but with 2 classes per day.

Biodiversity in a Plastic World

Students will use common household materials to create a beautiful, multidimensional, group artwork that explores the impact that pollution from human activities is having on the earth's vulnerable ecosystems and the creatures found within.

  • Identifying the types of plastic and ways plastic is used in students' everyday lives
  • Looking at the plastic waste cycle and how it impacts the natural environment
  • Recognising changes we can make to reduce plastic waste
  • Using everyday household plastics to create an interpretive art installation that represents students' learning about how plastic waste affects sea life
