Musical Futures: Find Your Voice @ Fred Longworth High School, Manchester
May 2 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Musical Futures: Find Your Voice is a practical, hands-on, inclusive approach for engaging students of all ages with singing through vocal work and the integration of mobile technology. The approach looks at a range of teaching and learning strategies to engage all students with singing in the classroom and to help them feel confident about using their voices and mobile technology to create and explore music.

Integrated with the Find Your Voice approach and training is the exploration of the use of mobile phones and tablets as tools for enhancing, extending and creating music. This use of technology has been powerful in demonstrating to teachers and students that mobile devices can be powerful instruments in their own right.
