Coding + Music is a mini-course that introduces students to the basics of coding through music! In this block-coding course, students investigate how code can be used to create and enhance music by building programs that generate beat patterns, chord progressions, and musical sequences with visualizations.
By the Numbers
|Coding in Music: Students will learn how to add chords, notes, and visualizations to their songs. For a final project, students create a full-length song with music visualization.|
Format of Course
The entirely web-based curriculum is made up of a series of learning items that introduce students to some fundamentals of programming. Each lesson is made up of short video tutorials, example programs, programming exercises, challenge problems, and connections. The course is designed as a creative, 10-hour long mini-unit, though schools implement it in a variety of ways.
Who is it for?
The Coding Explorations in Music course is designed for complete beginners with no previous background in computer science. The course is highly visual, dynamic, and interactive and can be used with middle or high school students.
