The guide demonstrates removing music already on a video file and attaching new music to the video before exporting.

How it maps to the curriculum


Strand: 2. Innovate and Ideate

Strand unit: 6. Design a Rhythmic / Melodic Ostinato

Suggestions for use: A teacher could create videos of aural skills resources and upload these to YouTube. These could then be used as part of a form/quiz on Microsoft forms for all classes. The author used this with students in 2nd year who were able to combine their own compositions, that they had created in Soundtrap, with a film clip/sequence of images. She has also used this with Transition Year students in creating media for a school show (e.g. recreating famous ads).
