Evermoon Music Studio

Augmenting Music Education

This space was created by Ewen Sinclair, a music educator who is passionate about student empowerment, creativity, and identity. He has taught and led the creative arts across all age ranges in a variety of schools in the UK, China, Germany, the UAE and Kazakhstan. As well as serving as a reference hub for students, this site contains a number of resources and ideas that can be downloaded and adapted for free!

The Immersium Engine

The Immersium Engine was crafted by Ewen Sinclair and the Creative Arts team at Haileybury Astana and features a number of key stage 4 and 5 students. Based on interpretations of the word sustain, the unique performance evolves continuously over the course of an hour, cycling through a variety of atmospheres generated by a combination of original instruments, artificial intelligence and digital soundscapes. Art and visuals were created by IB art students in order to ensure a surreal, lucid experience inspired by liminal spaces and the Dreamcore movement.

My Whole School Music Curriculum

This music education course consists of a free, unified music curriculum and several online resources for year 1 to 9. It can be used or adapted to suit any demographic or local educational expectation. The curriculum and resources will be updated with new material as I interact with different year groups and try different approaches in the classroom.

KS3 Music Education Hub

The KS3 Music Education Hub is a free music curriculum and online resource for 11-14 year olds. A musical taxonomy of cognitive steps supercharges creativity, ownership, identity, and independence while students create and manage an online portfolio that showcases their unique musical journey. I have used this curriculum as stand-alone provision for classes that are more independent, within well equipped, specious schools. However, I currently use this program as provision for extension students alongside my music course.

Online Music Lessons

All of the lessons in this series are designed with ease of access in mind. Each video tutorial is less than 10 minutes in length and features a clear goal with cognitive steps that can be achieved swiftly without access to instruments. Although originally levelled for different year groups, I feel that all KS2 students will be able to gain something from each session.

Music Resource Packs

Song specific resource packs created by recycling some of my old projects. You can use these resources during your music lessons as scaffolding for younger students, or as a reference for independent study among older students. Each activity explores one or more parts from the piece in question.

Creativity in Context

Creativity in context is a student driven music curriculum for KS1-3 that features an efficiently assessed, skills-based framework that also empowers student ownership and creativity. I halted it's development to work on digital curricula but you may find some useful resources within.

The metaphorical adventure consists of 6 teacher triggered slides that represent different sections of a music lesson. Every slide is accompanied by a custom jingle that serves to orientate students.
