14 Ways to Teach Music Using Audacity | Part 2

Article Contents


Today’s video is the second in my series about how to use and teach with Audacity. It covers 14 more examples of ways to use the app. This includes rounds and ostinato, found sounds and sound walks, making backing tracks, recording podcasts and stories, and editing speed, tempo, key and pitch of tracks, as well as exporting and using our audio. As well as that, this week’s ‘Teacher Read’ is ‘Start With Why’ by Simon Sinek.
