Wednesday @ 1:00 pm: Beat Making/Audio Production 101
Ever wonder how some of your favorite pop, hip-hop or EDM songs are created? Music these days does not necessarily require knowledge of a traditional instrument or music theory but a ear for melody and a beat. Music producers in contemporary music often use samples, loops and digital instruments to compose or 'program' their music in software known as a DAW or "Digital Audio Workstation". This software has become more intuitive and accessible over the years making it very easy for anyone to jump in and start making music.
The workshop will run through the fundamentals of Music Production and cover topics like:
- beat structure
- beat layering
- drum programming
if you've always wanted to learn more about music production and beat-making you've come to the right place!
Designed for teens and adults
Note: Please be aware that workshops participants will be required to have a laptop or desktop computer in order to use the required software. MOst of the software will be used in class but can be run from an internet browser, a download of Ableton Lite 10 will be needed for the final 2 classes.
