Music Production with Garageband aimed for students who wish to learn how to write music using the program. This class is for any musician who has envisioned themselves in the studio, creating and writing music like those of their favorite artists. If that sounds familiar to you, then our Music Production class is the first step to get you there! In this class, students will learn to work with Garageband to create their own music. Students will also learn to write music in other styles like rock, hip-hop, electronic and pop.
In this course, students will be taught how to create their own music using the many instruments available in the program. They will also learn how to record and edit midi music files and how to record their own acoustic instruments. The class will also cover how to make different types of beats that pertain to different styles of music like hip hop, dance, rock/pop, soul, R&B and jazz. Students will be shown how to go about blending the beats and styles to create music that is all their own and enjoyable to listen to!
The course will also cover how to record and edit sound audio. Participants will be taught how to add different effects to audio recordings to create unique sounds they can use for their compositions. Song structure and analysis will be taught so students can recognize song forms. With this knowledge students will be able to break down the structure of the music they listen to. By doing so, they will learn to emulate and, ultimately, create their own music. By the end of the course, each student will have composed tracks that are all their own! Students are required to have access to Garageband from a desktop, laptop or tablet and the ability to connect via Zoom meeting platform.
