What is Creative Music programming workshop with Sonic Pi?
The Sonic Pi music programming workshop is intended for upper elementary and high schools students as an introduction to programming and computer music. During the workshop students get to create their own songs by writing code with Sonic Pi, which is based on the popular Ruby programming language. They also learn the basics of electronic music production by using synthesizers, samplers and sequencing with Sonic Pi.
The workshop is beginner-friendly and requires no previous experience on programming or electronic music. In the workshop, students get their creative tasks from Mehackit-instructor but there's supportive material also at sonic-pi.mehackit.org. Sonic Pi is an open source program available for free.
The duration of the workshop is approximately five hours and it can be held during one single day (with few pauses and a lunch break) or it can be divided in multiple days. Mehackit offers an instructor and free learning materials for the schools.
The workshops are available in English and Finnish.
The course is part of Mehackit Atelier.
