We will learn the core concepts that underpin the softwares used to create music on computers. This will include basic functionality and also how use samples, create drum beats and basics of recording in using Midi and with microphones.
Each class we will focus on having a project that outlines the objectives of that class and by the end we will be able to see how we go from sounds and programming in settings to different types of digital music.
As well for the more advanced aspects we will learn some basics of setting up standard plugins like compression, reverb and EQ.
The over arching idea will be to give them the tools to explore and develop ideas on their own regardless of the instruments we play. This extends to being able to work together to highlight the possibilities for creativity on even basic inputs
