iMacs Take Music to a New Level

The College has invested in state-of-the-art computer provisions to support the learning of its Sixth Form Music students.

Six Apple iMacs and keyboards were recently installed in the College’s Music Department with the latest versions of composition programmes Logic and Sibelius to allow students to push the boundaries of their composition abilities.

The investment is expected to reap rewards, as Team Leader of Music and Performing Arts, Rob Wilkinson explains: “These brand new iMacs are essentially a recording studio in a computer. Students have the opportunity to play or sing their compositions directly into these programmes, cut, mix and edit them as they need. This is going to be fantastic for all our students, but especially for the non-notation readers. This will push their abilities and improve their music technology skills and we are excited to see where this will take them in the future.”

Business Manager, Nick Hill, said of the new technology: “We are very pleased as a College to have made such an investment for the betterment of students’ learning. Our students are our greatest assets and we will always strive to provide the very best equipment and learning opportunities we can, to help maximise their outcomes.”
