In this new podcast, Anita Holford, co-editor of Music Education Works, is talking with Emma Supica, Education Co-ordinator for Artiphon, a music tech company that creates new instruments to enable everyone to be creative, with or without prior musical experience. It’s latest is the Orba, a palm-held instrument that can be used alone or connected to other technology.
We talk about:
- Emma’s background in school music teaching, band directing, non-profits, and theatre/comedy improv
- the importance of play and creation in music
- Artiphon’s mission to bring music into the hands of more people of all skill levels
- how the Orba is being used in education, wellbeing and social justice settings
- how the Orba can be adapted for different people and environments
- the value of participant and user voice in education, in tech, and in advocating for both
