During this insight workshop, I got the opportunity to work with other students in my school to work on something entirely 'music' based. This included working as a team to take part in multiple tasks and activities such as rhythm games involving percussion instruments, music notation passing on the beats and writing a song with a given theme. We also got a brief introduction into the music industry; jobs available in the industry in the future and examples of projects Sam has worked on and is working on. I found this part of the day most interesting because I didn't realise how many people can be involved in writing a song, developing it and creating the lyrics.

How to access TICE Music
TICE Music is available through our various workshops and programmes. Full and half day workshops for primary schools, Taster workshops for secondary and the option of the full TICE programme. In addition, access to industry written project briefs for nationwide and international schools.
I think that TICE has had an immensely positive impact on my motivation, organisation and especially confidence. It has enabled me to create something that I am proud of and give me the support I needed whilst also allowing me to be quite independent. My confidence has grown tremendously. I can share ideas with my group and I'm fairly comfortable to perform on stage now which is something I previously hated. The number of new skills I have picked up during TICE are countless and they have helped me develop and grow as a person
