Here at Soundtrap, we know how creative students can be. Teachers always share the most incredible music and podcasts from their students and we are constantly impressed by their work. This year’s Soundtrap Creativity Challenge originated as an opportunity for students to create and share their creative projects from last school year.
From July through September we asked teachers, from the Soundtrap community and beyond, to submit their students’ original songs or podcasts. We received submissions from students of all ages around the United States and were so impressed with all the work they created! Each work is unique and has its own perspective. We selected five winners ranging from elementary to high school who created podcasts and songs. Please join us in congratulating and celebrating these student winners!
The Surprise Spell
This song was based on emotions the student felt when watching an animated series called Kepo and the Age of the Wonderbeasts. We could see this student becoming a film composer! With it’s upbeat tempo and it’s great vocal effects, this song really takes you on a journey.
