Soundtrap for Education

Soundtrap for Education, is an online audio recording studio that enables students and teachers to collaborate in a safe learning environment, using any device, at any time, from any location.  As of May last year SoundtrapEDU is available to schools and classrooms throughout Australia and New Zealand exclusively through Music EDnet, a regional partner of MusicFirst. Access to the online studio for interested schools or teachers is available here. School wide site licenses are now available for schools with a total population of 300+ students.

In 2017, one year after Soundtrap’s initial release, over 600 schools across Australia and New Zealand had taken the program on board, today more than 10,000 schools worldwide use Soundtrap as part of their learning. Backing up their commitment to education, Soundtrap is a Microsoft Authorised Education partner, a Google for Education partner and a member of the National Association for Music Education.

Music teacher Brad Fuller, of Northern Beaches Christian School in a Sydney suburb, is among the many instructors who’ve found the tool to be transformative in the classroom. “Soundtrap is the only collaborative, real-time solution we’ve found that works for the modern teenager in schools. It’s like Google Docs for musicians,” he said.
