O-Generator World Music Joins The Sibelius Education Suite

United States
London, UK, 2 August 2007 — Sibelius Software continues to expand its acclaimed Education Suite with the exclusive distribution of O-Generator World Music, a new African & Latin music edition of the BETT Award-nominated loop-based composition software from O-Music.

O-Generator World Music empowers teachers with an engaging and interactive way to teach this sometimes-unfamiliar area of the music curriculum. It is completely designed around the requirements of the curriculum, and follows clear, progressive lesson plans.

Designed to run on an interactive white board for whole class teaching, the software provides step-by-step exercises to teach students to play African and Latin American rhythms with school percussion instruments. A clear voice-over guides both teacher and students through exercises, and videos are included to show children exactly how to play each instrument.

O-Generator World Music quickly gets a class playing together to create often-complex rhythms that they recognize from popular music. Teachers can print out percussion scores directly from the software to use as handouts, and the O-Generator World Music comes with a booklet full of lesson plans.

A second part of the software enables World Music composition in the ICT lab. The “O-Instructor” encourages students to compose their own rhythms on lab computers using O-Generator’s revolutionary circular loop-view and sequencer. Students can even export these in a format that can be imported into Sibelius to form the basis of wider composition projects.

In addition to all this, there is a World Music quiz that tests student’s knowledge on subjects such as the origin of different percussion instruments and styles of rhythm.

“Watching a class play along together with O-Generator World Music is really inspiring” says Jeremy Silver, CEO of Sibelius Software. “Students are quickly able to get to master really quire complicated syncopated rhythms and the software really brings them back to playing real instruments.”
