Re: teaching kids Live-Looping
thanks for the link, it's really great.
I also do music workshops for children with live-looping. They love it!!
I wouldn't say I make a living with it, but I do get paid for workshops.
I like to keep groups smaller (max. ~16) and work more interactively. I
usually teach them first some Beatboxing basics.
When looping, I have a mic for myself and one mic for the kids. It's also
really fun to add some FX from outer space for fun (they love
octaver/pitch shifting ;-).
One thing I've found is that - unlike usual live looping - it is
interesting to use long loop lengths (i.e. 20 seconds, possibly longer).
This way, you spread the different sounds over time and don't overload the
childrens' attention. It helps them to listen more carefully, anticipate
returning sounds. (They get really excited when they hear their own voice
Also, I find it advisable to keep live looping sections with mic/Fx etc.
short (i.e. 10-15 minutes - no ambient concert! ;-) and do other things
(games, dance, songs... involving physical activity) before/after.
If any of you have experience with live looping + children, I'd be glad to
hear your experience!
