O-Generator is a free music making tool developed by O-Music for use in Essex schools.
It allows students to Create, Learn, Play and Perform Music at school, and at home as O-Generator runs as cloud software and so requires not installation, but runs through any computer browser. It is ideal for Key Stage 2 and 3 students.

CREATE Your Own Songs – At School or Home – Record & Export to Sequencer
LEARN & COMPOSE Popular Music Styles – Rhythm, Melody & Harmony – Step by Step Lessons – Quizzes and Challenges – All Levels of Ability

WRITE & PERFORM Song Writing Projects – Ideal for Non Specialist Teachers – Cross Curricular
Song Writing and Performance
The short video above demonstrates how the free half or full day course can get the whole class involved in writing lyrics and performing. The sessions are energising, fun, yet teach core skills in literacy, communication, brain storming and teamwork.

O-Music support teaching staff through the provision of free in-house CPD training sessions. These can be booked along with free workshops for students.
Your school can sign up to O-Generator for free as this is a subsidised service provided through Essex Music Services, and can also book a workshop for students on the same day.
To do so, please contact Liz Leatherdale by emailing Liz.Leatherdale @essex.gov.uk
