Course Description

Music and Technology in the 21st Century: How do computers think about music? 

If you’re a singer or instrumentalist that learned about music using ‘conventional’ notation, sight reading and ear training, this presentation will teach you the fundamentals of computer music software such as MIDI sequencers and Digital Audio Workstations. By the end of it you should be ready to dive into Garageband, Logic Pro or Cakewalk, as well as plug-ins and sample libraries, and get creative.
