Tiny Masters of Tomorrow

Over in Montreal, Quebec, the kids are becoming the tastemakers. Bancroft Elementary has started an awesome after school program called Modern Music Makers, which basically take students between the ages of 5 and 10, and gives them the means to create music. Their tools are things like drum machines, laptops, microphones, a midi keybaord, as well as cameras and a make shift green screen to make videos with.

I think the results were pretty awesome, as you can see above with Nigel’s awesome song U.F.O. I would have absolutely loved to do something like this when I was a kid. I taught in a before and after school program for three years, this would have been something I would have loved to do with the kids. Hopefully this can inspire a few of you to do something just as fun.

    That program sounds awesome. Way better than the great square dancing/’chicken dance’ classes I was treated to as a (Canadian) child.
