I received an email recently from a teacher asking about resources to use in a school MakerSpace to integrate music and digital musical creation. This is what I suggested. If you have other thoughts, resources or links, please share them as a comment or a reply to @wfryer on Twitter!

Here are some resources for digital music creation which my 4th and 5th grade STEM students used the past year in our classroom Maker Studio. I also taught a multi-part, integrated STEM unit on the “Science & Technology of Sound & Music” which has good lesson ideas and resources. This is an example of an instructional video I created for students as part of this unit at a center where they could experiment and play with a “water phone:”

Also here are serveral free presentations from the K-12 Online Conference in past years which relate to music that might be helpful and give you ideas/resources:

  1. Grab the MIC by @originalmisterc
  2. T3:Triple Threat in Tech: Art, Music, and Media by @musictechie
  3. STEM: Creating A Maker Mindset by @vvrotny and @speterson224
  4. Teaching The 21St Century Musician by @thomasjwest
