Abstract:The goal of this project was to design an innovative, music workshop for Kaliber Kunstenschool. Therefore, a research question was created, where the project is based on; ‘Given that playing together motivates someone to keep playing a musical instrument, how do you develop an innovative workshop that contributes to that? ‘. The final project has resulted in a music ‘workshop’ that gives an extra dimension to- and stimulates practicing at home before a band meeting. The users are communicating via the designed system, by sharing video/audio files of their practice sessions. Stars can be achieved though completing tasks in the system, which are motivational. By practicing with the video/audio files, not only the own notes are practiced, also the collaboration skill is practiced. The system had to cause more progression during the band meeting which should have resulted in team bonding and less drop out of band members. Unfortunately, only one out of the four subjects in the test did like to use the system, and the overall results are showing a downwards number of times practicing a musical piece at home when using the system in comparison without the use of the system.
