Going Further with BandLab for Education

So you’ve got the BandLab for Education basics down, and now you want to do more! Luckily, there’s an incredible music teaching community out there with many more lesson ideas and resources to help you power up.

Here are some of our favourites.

Midnight Music

For more lesson ideas and resources, check out Midnight Music and their free music tech lesson plans!

Midnight Music is run by the awesome Katie Wardrobe, a globally recognised music technology trainer and consultant with a passion for helping music teachers.

Katie has deep music EdTech experience, and her blog covers technology ideas for iPads, Chromebooks, Macs & PCs, across primary and secondary classroom levels.

You can also follow her Facebook page, Pinterest or the Midnight Music Community.

I Teach Music Technology

Check out the I Teach Music Technology Facebook Group for inspiration and teacher-led discussions!

A tight but fast-growing group, ITMT is a specialised group full of supportive and knowledgable music tech educators of all levels.

Before you hear about music edtech in the news – or if you’re short on time to follow developments – this group is a great place to stay in the loop and hear what other educators from around the world are working on.

It’s also a helpful forum to ask about school-oriented music production questions, BandLab for Education or otherwise.  

Mix Major and Inclusive Music on YouTube

We owe a lot of credit to the MixMajor (run by Eric) and Inclusive Music (by Phil Heeley) YouTube Channels for their awesome BandLab for Education tutorials! We’ve mentioned some of their key BandLab for Education tutorials in another article, but both are highly passionate music teachers who have practical advice for music teachers of all levels.

Check out their pages to get even more ideas and general thoughts on music production in schools.

If you have questions or suggestions, feel free to ask us on the BandLab for Education chat or support@bandlab.com!
