Adventures in Music Production
This course provides an introduction to music production and recording for even the newest musicians! At the beginning of the week, students will learn the basics of music (pitch, rhythm, melody, timbre, texture, dynamics), and how to use professional music recording software for creating and recording their own musical ideas.
Later in the week, students will learn about the difference between midi and audio and how to assign different types of sounds and instruments to separate tracks. Students will learn the science of sound and synthesis and how to loop musical ideas in Ableton Live’s session view.
At the end of the week, students will have created their own arrangement and production of an existing popular song and will have learned the basics of music production. Students will go home with the ability to produce their own music.
