Kick out the jams! Students rock out with music system
A REVOLUTIONARY new music system which allows students to rehearse playing instruments without disturbing others in the same classroom has been used in Bristol for the first time.
Redland Green School is the first school in the city to utilise the JamPod music teaching system.
The system enables students wearing headphones to work independently or in groups in one classroom.
Within the 'silent classroom', up to six groups can work independently from one another, freeing up rooms for other lessons.

The system also enables each musician to control their own personal mix of sounds, with drummers often preferring to hear the bass guitar and singers often requesting to hear keyboards and lead guitar.
Redland Green will collaborate with primary schools to allow younger pupils to share the benefits of the system.
The school's head teacher Sarah Baker said: "JamPod is a really important investment. At Redland Green School we are firmly committed to providing students with practical opportunities to make music and to ensuring students have a broad and deep curriculum that includes creative subjects that are central to our students learning."
Emily Wilson, head of music learning at the school, said, "Getting the JamPod has completely transformed music learning in Redland Green School.
"Not only can students learn in groups in the same classroom, without creating any noise, but the set up means that student-teacher feedback becomes much more personalised and the quality of peer assessment increases.
"Since students have been using the JamPod, our rehearsal rooms at lunchtimes are full to the brim with students desperately wanting to learn an instrument outside of lesson times. There is excitement in the air here and I do not want that to disappear."
