This is an archived page for dolltr!ck's Music Makers Lab, which ran during the COVID-19 pandemic to provide free online after-school programming for K-12 students. In its debut run, over 100 students were served and participated in these music-making activities.
Thank you to all students, parents, and families for your support!

MUSIC MAKERS LAB:
INFO FOR PARENTS + ADULT STUDENTS
Thank you for joining Music Makers Lab! I'm Claire, the person behind dolltr!ck, I appreciate you letting me share about music technology with your family in the light of the international COVID-19 situation.
While dolltr!ck's MML is mostly geared towards young ones, the videos are public and free to watch, so all are welcomed to tune in! On this page, I've compiled some information that is hopefully helpful as we go along on our music-making journeys together.
Please direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you as soon as I can! Those of you whose kids have been in the doll troop with me will find this email familiar - now that in-person meetings aren't possible, this contact email will be for other things I do related to music tech ed, so please continue to keep it in your email address book!
Here are some free apps we might use in class! We will start off with web-based music tools, and when the time comes to use the following apps, I will also make an announcement in the lessons and office hours.
TO DOWNLOAD AS SOON AS POSSIBLE:
Mobile app by KORG
Free for Android until March 20th
Free for iOS until March 31st

In addition to Music Makers Lab, I also do other streaming on Twitch (if anyone's kids need to be occupied some more!). For a comprehensive online schedule with all daily programs, please see the Live Streaming page.
In addition to free programming, I also teach with 343 Labs (K-12 and all ages) and Beats By Girls NYC (K-12). These are great organizations with communities that are encouraging and supportive of new learners, which I value very much. I also teach one-on-one lessons via video conferencing! Please let me know if you're interested in any of these.
For more learning opportunities, please visit my learning website or my page about the doll troop. Activities for the doll troop are temporarily on hold because of COVID-19, but may go online in the future as well!
