Music Production and Recording*
*Music Production and Recording opportunities are designed to introduce students to the world of producing and recording music via midi and live instruments. After learning the ins and outs of the “Garage Band” software, students will begin producing simple beats and songs using midi controllers and loops. As the course progresses, students will create more complex pieces and begin exploring recording their own original compositions with live instruments into their midi productions.
