As part of the TPN Student Site upgrades in 2015, COSAMP is calling for schools to submit student band recordings/demos and recordings from within their music technology programs to be featured online each month through our SoundCloud platform.
One of the key pillars for our Student Site, aside from providing a leading interactive study guide across our 32 TPN Program Areas, is to create a site packed full of student focused information and foster the sense of community and networking that’s essential in the industry, post study. Alongside Songbook, with its hundreds of audio/video song links, lyrics and artist information, sits exclusive IndustryTV instructional videos and career based interviews and our Access All Areas industry reference guide. From next year, we’ll add the ability to “feature” songs from students within the TPN, with a playlist to appear right on the home page, once logged in. With over 200 schools using the TPN and over 5,000 students accessing the Student Site each week, it will be a great way to showcase your students’ work, but also for the bands and artists themselves to promote their music to people all across the country.
We’ll also be adding in the latest youth specific music news and information, our Virtual Classroom platform, COSAMP and Melbourne Polytechnic Study Pathway information and much more.
We’ve already begun accepting submissions from Teachers and Music Coordinators, with the process quick and easy. If you’ve got some student recordings from your school based programs, email through your mp3 recording(s) or send a downloadable link through to email@example.com with your School Name and the Song and Band name relating to each song. Students can also submit their own band recordings from outside the classroom as well! Keep an eye on www.cosamp.com.au for more information about the coming site upgrades.
