What equipment do I need?
Soundtrap works on any computer or mobile device connected to the internet.
To participate fully in the online lessons you will need to be able to run zoom and soundtrap simultaneously – we therefore recommend pupils use a laptop or PC so they can run both applications together.
Alternatively you can use two separate devices (e.g. phone & tablet) with one connected to zoom and the other using soundtrap.
What does it cost?
The course costs £65 per term (10 lesson) – The costs includes a login to Soundtrap for the duration of the course so that pupils can continue creating and composing their own digital music at home.
Financial Support: Assistance with fees may be available on application to those on restricted incomes living in Wandsworth, subject to conditions. The criteria is similar to those in receipt of Free School Meals.
