VoiceMod: Using AI to Create Songs to Showcase Learning

Artificial Intelligence (AI) seems to be everywhere you look today! I recently saw a social media post claiming that you would be "left behind" if you were not "using AI in the classroom." 

I am not going to lie, AI can be highly intimidating; however, it can also be used to help our students learn in new and exciting ways. If we think our students need to start using AI, then we are kidding ourselves. 

Create Songs with AI Through VoiceMod

I recently came across a tool called VoiceMod, which uses Artificial Intelligence to generate songs. What an excellent way for students to express their knowledge in new and creative ways! Students write the lyrics, and VoiceMod generates a song based on the words, 

How it Works

Here's how it works.

Step 1: Visit the VoiceMod website and be sure to sign up for a free account!

Step 2: Choose Create Your Content and decide how you want to create content. Do you want to upload your own song? Do you want to type in your lyrics and let AI do the rest? 

Step 3: Create and share your content! I decided on the Create a Song option, which allows me to create a song with the preloaded AI artists. 

First, I chose the song I wanted to write my lyrics to. I chose to make a pop song! 

Then, I chose the artist that I wanted to sing my song. I chose Ed!

Next, I wrote my lyrics! I chose to make a song about Universal Design for Learning. You are limited by time, so you have to make your lyrics short and to the point. 

Finally, I created my song, which I will debut here! It can be uploaded to VoiceMod's site or downloaded.

The best part is that I can download the song. Students can place a downloaded copy in their One Drive or Google Drive to keep private and share only with their classmates. Or they could use a program like Garage Band to mash songs together to make a collaborative creation!
