The Sonic Explorations team has been busy at work piloting the LRNG learning playists platform and making preparations for creating six really cool music learning playlists:
- Coing and programming music
- Making beats
- Building instruments and interfaces
- Producing music
- Connecting music and culture
Our goals is to develop playlists that emphasize creativity and self-expression while fostering musical inquiry, deepening musical skills and understandings, and strengthening participants’ sense of selves as musical people who make a difference.
Our initial pilot playlists have centered more exploring the possibilities of the LRNG platform. These experiments were conducted by the NYU Music Experience Design Lab with two cohorts: teen musicians in NYC and pre-service music educators.
