Introductory Music Technology

Program Description

The Introductory Music Technology program is designed for students who have a budding interest (but little to no prior experience) in songwriting, music production, electronic music, and audio-related technology. The course curriculum is designed to introduce the fundamentals of audio recording, editing, creative processing, electro-acoustic composition, and live presentation of music online. Students will complete short assignments toward a small-scale creative project using common freeware and a flexible assortment of available resources in a remote setting.
