How to code for music
In this Summer School, we’ll learn to code, from the basic blocks. Arcade, is a Microsoft programming language, which transforms programming into an artistic game.
We offer a practical approach. You will create the games with your own hands and imagination. We mix Music, Technology, Coding and Art, by using a methodology developed over 8 years and 10,000 workshops in more than 500 schools, across 20 countries. You will learn a lot of Musical and Computer Science topics, but the complexity is hidden behind the music, the amusing sprites and the animations.
We keep updating the lessons, based on your feedback – we stimulate your imagination and provide you with the tools to get there. You will quickly master the basics and you will then find it much easier to approach any other text-based programming language.
Video games are fun, creative and also musical! We will create animations and mesmerising effects. All of our video games, platformers and arcades, will have a musical twist, for you to unleash your creativity.
This Summer School is ideal for
- Students aged 9 to 13, with an interest in Music and Technology
- Parents and teachers eager to share these opportunities with children/students
- Anyone brand new to programming, who would like a soft introduction into this magic world
We are having a lot of fun whilst designing this course, we can’t wait to have you onboard!
