Chrome Music Lab!
During this current period of remote learning, it's always good to find things online that we can do for fun as well as use in the online learning space! This week, students in Year 3/4 have been using Chrome Music Lab to be creative and make some fun tunes! I thought it might be a great resource to share that we all have access to!
What is Chrome Music Lab?
Chrome Music Lab is a website that makes learning music more accessible through fun, hands-on experiments.
What can it be used for?
Many teachers have been using Chrome Music Lab as a tool in their classrooms to explore music and its connections to science, math, art, and more. They’ve been combining it with dance and live instruments. Here’s a collection of some uses we’ve found on Twitter.
Can I use it to make my own songs?
Yes. Check out the Song Maker experiment, which lets you make and share your own songs.
Do I need to make an account?
Nope. Just open any experiment and start playing.
How were these built?
All our experiments are all built with freely accessible web technology such as Web Audio API, WebMIDI, Tone.js, and more. These tools make it easier for coders to build new interactive music experiences. You can get the open-source code to lots of these experiments here on Github.
What devices do these work on?
You can play with these experiments across devices – phones, tablets, laptops – just by opening the site on a web browser such as Chrome.
What's next for Chrome Music Lab?
We always get inspired by new, unexpected ways that people use these experiments. If you’d like to share something with us, post it with #chromemusiclab or drop us a line.
