Music Video Games Online

This fully online school integrates STEM subjects with the arts. Breaking music down into bits and bytes and taking imaginative leaps with the video game controls, nurtures children’s creativity and potential, enhancing their abilities far better than purely STEM.

Video games are fun, creative and also musical! Using Microsoft Arcade, we transform programming into an artistic musical game. The complexity is hidden behind the music, the amusing sprites and the animations. Use your own hands and imagination while picking up Music and Computer Science concepts. – a great advantage when learning any text-based programming language in the future.

We mix Music, Technology, Coding and Art and have developed this method over 8 years, 8,000+ workshops in more than 500+ schools, across 20 countries. The complexity is hidden behind the music, the amusing sprites and the animations. We keep updating the lessons, based on your feedback. You will quickly master the basics of block coding, and this will be a great advantage when learning any other text-based programming language in the future.
