JamPod

Our award winning, trademarked system allows large groups of students to access instruments that inspire and engage.

JamPod™ is installed in classrooms at all key stages and is transforming music education. The project was awarded ‘Best Resource in Music Education’ in 2013 due to its unique approach to teaching music. All students experience music practically but all sound within the suite is controlled by the tutor, with students hearing what they need to best progress through headphones. JamPod™ schools are supported by on site support from experienced school music teachers, it is designed to help ‘you’ embrace relevant technologies and teaching practice.

Secondary Education

JamPod™ was initially conceived for secondary music classrooms. Do you spend most of your time trying to find leads, re-skinning drums and are producing recordings time consuming and challenging? JamPod™ is hard wired to make things durable and ready to use when you need it. Whole classes engage in music practically, as a band. Schools normally install between 5 and 11 band positions.

Each student band includes:

Each student band is connected to the JamPod™ tutors station. Designed specifically for use by teachers, the tutors station can be accessed from your iPad or your desktop computer. The JamPod™ tutors station allows you to:

The iPad interface is completely mobile, allowing you to move around your music classroom freely, whilst keeping in constant touch with whats going on. You can even keep in touch with your lesson if you need to pop out of the room.

Each student band can record easily, without the help of their tutor, but if you need to create a more detailed recording, access your desktop computer and press record on any or all of your bands. For those schools that wish too, Mix Music Education will help you set up and out of school academy which ‘could’ generate you income. Mix Music Education exclusively supply and install JamPod™, prices vary dependent on your requirements but we pride ourselves on creating projects that match your budget.

“JamPod has totally revolutionised both my teaching and student’s learning in my classroom. The classroom is a hive of activity at the end of the school day. It’s fantastic.” Stuart Shepherd – Turton High School

Primary Education

For Primary we have created a specific installation that when used in conjunction with iPads, allows unprecedented and unique delivery of the national curriculum. JamPod™ requires limited floor space, allowing you to install the technology in the corner of your existing classroom.

Without iPads the suite still provides engagement for up to 8 students but when combined with iPads, the suite can be used by all within their music lessons. The installation and the included supporting resources are designed to allow none specialists to deliver immediately.

“I’m particularly impressed with the way it has engaged less confident pupils – pupils who would previously never dreamed of performing – who are now excited about taking centre stage. The kudos they get from other pupils is really changing their personal experience of school.” Gary Shaw – Arnot St Mary Primary School 

Other Applications

JamPod™ has been installed in a number of College’s and Community Projects across the UK. Contact us for more information.

We all know the benefits of making music socially, educationally and professionally. Over recent months it has been particularly gratifying to see academic studies officially backing up what we have always known but rarely had the documentation to prove. In September 2013 undergraduate student Rie Davies and academics Dr Maddie Ohl and Dr Anne Manyanderead more …
