With funding from the Raspberry Pi Foundation, this project developed an experimental school curriculum for teaching programming through the medium of digital music. Using the Raspberry Pi as a standalone music synthesis engine, students can connect a keyboard and screen to define their own programs expressing musical structure. In the process, they acquire a range of fundamental computer science concepts and basic programming skills. Curriculum development and a pilot series of lessons were created in collaboration with a school in a low-income area of East London.
