Key Stage 3 – Explore-a-Synth

Explore-a-Synth is a teaching tool developed to demonstrate the relationships between music, science, technology and engineering, encouraging creativity and exploration. It relates directly to aspects of the Key Stage 3 National Curriculum in England (covering wave theory), including Music, Physics and Computing.

Using an online synthesiser, pupils can experiment, compose and learn by creating a variety of sounds to download and use in compositions.
