Controlling music with inputs

Lesson 4 of 5


7-11 yrs

Pupils develop their understanding of using the inputs and outputs on the BBC micro:bit and write, test and debug programs to experiment with using selection and the accelerometer to play different notes. They also consider how the micro:bit could be used to help people who find playing instruments difficult. 

Key learning:

  • To identify how inputs are used in programs
  • To write programs that use inputs and selection
  • To write and evaluate algorithms
