Using 'Soundtrap' to Support Singing (PDST Music)

Added: 10 Nov 2021 Contributor: PDST Resource type: Demonstration / Guide/notes / Audio / Video / Presentation

This presentation tries to show how we can enthuse our young singers after the Covid lockdown period. Currently (Autumn 2021), singing can only be done in short time-spans, so warm-ups are a good way to prepare the voice and get the students singing. A simple round allows for further development of the singing voice in the classroom.

How it maps to the curriculum


Strand: Performing

Suggestions for use: 'Soundtrap' is a piece of music software that can enhance the singing space in school. The software makes recording sound very professional. Allied to this is the ability to record choristers either individually or in small groups, so that eventually they can hear a full choir sound albeit via the computer. 'Soundtrap' also has huge potential to assist in the production of backing tracks or indeed musical 'Tik Toks' with a difference. Here the students perform their own music as opposed to just downloading someone else's performance. These ideas are suitable for all age cohorts.
