Lately I’ve been preparing a keynote speech for a music education conference with the theme Play, Create, Inspire. It’s an easy theme to tie into music technology because there are so many cool, inspiring things going on right now.
One of the topics I’m going to cover in the speech is multitrack music videos. They are the ones you see frequently on Youtube which feature a singer performing all the parts of an arrangement by themselves. You see the performer multiple times on the screen in boxes – a bit like the opening theme to the Brady Bunch.
Today I share some tips on using this concept as a project with your students at school – the educational benefits, which apps to use and a few tips.
