Audio Book Workshops are a great way to get children composing and manipulating sound using ICT.

Audio Book Workshops are a fabulous way to introduce children to composition, manipulating sound using ICT and the relationship between words and music.

Each workshop features one book and culminates in a CD audio book featuring the children's compositions interspersed with their own narration of the book. An ideal project to get older children creating a product for younger children, it covers all aspects of music from composition and performing, to appraisal and evaluation.

The workshop can feature a book chosen by the school or one can be provided (featuring a range of fabulous pictures and places, moods and emotions).

A great way to finish the project is to send a copy to the author along with letters from the children. Many authors do take the time to reply, which creates a real buzz of excitement!
