5. Music Technology & Performance (Delphi & Rockwell)

Day 4 CMA SC July 16-22 Music Tech

Using an array of technological strategies, not only through the media of iPads, but also using music and media technology to illustrate and explore key mathematical concepts, CMA invite students to form real and meaningful relationships with them. Creating music with technology and mathematics becomes a fascinating way to explore patterns and sequences.

Glimpse of a Music Tech Workshop


In Trigonometry for example Sine Waves are heard and visualised giving students an inherent understanding of what they are, while seeing and discovering their natural place in the world, and not simply accepting the traditional teaching approach that sine is simply a number or a ratio of one value to another.

Music Tech Workshop

Through the use of music and media technology, great strides can be made visualising concepts and forming real and meaningful relationships with these concepts.

Music Perf

Students who play an instrument may avail of our Maths Rock Band where music is performed based on mathematical concepts. Usually our electric & digital group of musicians play drums, electric guitar, bass guitar, electronics, iPads, controllers, violin, cello, piano, tin whistle, clarinet and harp among many others. Its a fascinating exploration into mathematics and music and the results are powerful and usually very loud and fast!

7. Digital Film & Photography (Delphi & Rockwell)

Holgrams & Trapeziums

Please note that this page is currently being updated live with new images and video from Summer 2017 being added. The rest of the page below will be completed over the next few days. You can always see our You Tube channel & Facebook for an extensive array of videos. Thank you!

Students will also have the opportunity to script, produce, edit and make a movie including composing the soundtrack, which will be completed in Music Technology workshops.

Student films produced can be viewed on our Student Productions page.
