The Benton Park Live Coding Orchestra

We’re always really excited to see the resources and tools we make being used by kids in school. This video is from Benton Park Primary School in Newcastle, where a Sonic Pi orchestra put on a live coding performance recently. You can see setup, practice and some of the performance itself here.

I first watched this with Sam Aaron, who created Sonic Pi, looking over my shoulder, and we were both giggling with glee.

If you’re a teacher and you’d like to get something like this going in your own school, but don’t know where to start, why not apply for one of our free CPD sessions at Picademy?

And if you’d like to hear more from Sam, he’s going to be live-coding┬ásome of the music for the evening party at our upcoming Big Birthday Weekend – I hope you’ll be joining us!

Edited to add: you can read more about the orchestra on the Benton Blog.
