Great course! Very straightforward with lots of strategies that I can easily implement into my classroom. Also learnt about a few new GarageBand features.

The basic premise of this course was sound, but most steps were self-explanatory with very short videos, lasting under a minute. The longest video was about Garage-band, which is an apple only app and therefore we cannot use it at my school. An alternative program tutorial and explanation would have been great.

This course was very disappointing. I do not feel that the title of the course accurately represents the content covered. I was hoping to broaden my knowledge of remote learning activities in relation to film music but rather was taught how to make a short film using iMovie.

This course is highly relevent to the stage 6 Music 1 course content, particularly as the topic ‘Film Music’ is one of the most popular choices that students create for.

It was a well presented course that ties in well with our current stage 6 programs. It was quite useful and i will be implementing some of the content into the learning.

This course was relevant and will definitely help in the planning and implementation of our film music topic, in which we have a composition assessment.
