Year 2 – Making Music

Jan 29, 2024Computing, Music

Our latest Computing unit has helped us to develop our Computing skills, and has also broadened our knowledge around music.  Through PurpleMash, we have accessed ‘2Sequence’ and this tool allowed us to drag and drop sounds into the grid to build up a piece of music.  Through using this, we have explored harmony and tempo and twe have gained an understanding of musical scores.

First of all, we explored the different tools and we learned how to add different instruments, change the volume and the tempo of each instrument and then we looked at the playback feature.  We were then given the music to ‘Twinkle Twinkle’ and we had to personalise the music by adding different instruments and changing the tempo.

We have also learned how to save our work and how to open our files to show others our work.
