O-Generator engages children from the outset thanks to its clear design, which uses a circular representation of a bar of music, onto which students place their own beats, rhythms and melodies.
The use of contemporary musical instruments and styles excites students, and lets them compose the kind of music they most enjoy listening to.
And because the software is not limited to preset musical loops, the possibilities for students are endless!
