O-Generator Composing Club

The Composing Club is an opportunity for those students who are keen to learn more about composing using O-Generator and other music technology. Students will be guided through KS2 and KS3 curriculum topics along the way. As O-Generator is an online tool, an Education Music specialist from O-Music is able to tutor, guide, listen to students work remotely. Students will learn how to create and develop music ideas.

Students cover these musical areas.

  • Rhythm & Pulse
  • The Drum Kit
  • Melody & Harmony
  • Major and Minor Pentatonic Scales
  • Syncopation
  • Arrangement
  • Chords
  • Triads
  • Primary Chords

Students will compose and create in different styles that will be recorded.

If you have O-Generator you can create a Composing Club. Our team will then run this online. The students will work through our specially devised composing programme. We can support your students offering advice, providing lesson tasks, direct feedback on each composition, allowing the students to revise, improve and develop their songs from school or home.
If the school has a license, students have their own login. They have easy, free, safe access from home. The school sets up the club and provides O-Music with the student login details. Over the course of a term, our tutors can set tasks and students can ask questions and send requests via the Composing Club Q&A on our website.

We have created simple bite-sized modules that are set by our club teacher.
