8th Grade Music Technology
The 8th Grade Technology course is designed to introduce students to the basics of digital music production and all its facets in the popular music landcscape. Students will be using programs such as GarageBand, Audacity, and iMovie to create their own origianal musical compositions as well as visual representations of the music.
While no prior musical knowledge is necessary for the course, traditional musical concepts such as pitch, rhythm, form, and timbre will be taught as well as digital music concepts like layering, automation, and Foley production.
This is a brand new course for this school year. Examples of some student work can be found in the folders below.
