New Song Creation method for pupils of Elementary/Junior High schools with "VOCALOID for Education" and Worksheets
The new song creation method, using digital musical software "VOCALOID for Education," enables pupils to input their songs and melodies just as they like, and, with a bit of trial and error, compose music. With the goal of enabling children to compose, sing, and present their own music, this method allows pupils to work independently and interactively through the use of "VOCALOID for Education" and an original teaching model.
