GarageBand comes to Old Ford Primary!

Pupils from year 5 composed music and sound effects for a topic-linked advert as part of a project using Garageband on iMac computers.

Pupils watched the original advert, observed the teacher begin to create a soundtrack and were then given free reign over their own. The group appraised the original music, discussed how it suited the mood and purpose of the advert, and considered this in their own work .
