Overview: This active 2 hour session incorporates everything a school is looking for in a workshop. Through the use of aural, visual and kinasthetic methods, your pupils will be engaged from start to finish in this topical session. Harnessing modern pop music to inspire (did you know Ed Sheeran uses a loop pedal?), the pupils will be given musical and technical guidance throughout to assist their multi-layered composition using the pedals. A CD of the compositions will be left with you for further assessment or prosperity.
