Course Description: 

Digital Music Production I is an introduction to digital editing and a continuation of the production editing covered in Audio Recording. We will cover the basics of software-based MIDI composition and sampling using the industry-standard application Ableton Live. Students will compose and arrange music using Ableton Push controllers.

Digital Music Production II will further explore software functionality and digital editing with a focus on the application Logic Pro X. Students will compose original music using MIDI keyboards. Real-world commercial viability will be explored through project-based learning and publishing by way of internet-based hosting services and a final performance of works.
