How can kids cross-fertilize their own creativity using the skills and new technologies to be creative coders and creative music composers at the same time?
Creative music Coding in Sonic Pi with Fero Király offers children the opportunity to create and learn about music by creating it.
Using the open-source tool SonicPi, children can be introduced in a short time in a playful way to the wide possibilities of working with sound and its organization, which further stimulates their own natural interest in music.
Sonic Pi was created at the University of Cambridge in compliance to the new rules of education in Great Britain, where since 2014 coding has been a mandatory part of the school curriculum, a skill that all students must master at least in the basics. This process opened the door to innovative forms of combined teaching of coding and music.
