Music Production 1

Music Production 1

In Music Production 1, students will be introduced to Apple’s digital audio workstation, Logic Pro X. Students will work mainly with recording and editing MIDI and audio files in Logic Pro X to learn the basics of songwriting and music composition. Whether you like rap, rock, jazz, classical or metal, this class will help you understand how your favorite styles of music are created and how you can go about creating them yourself. By the end of this class, you will be comfortable using Logic Pro X to record original song arrangements, have basic piano skills, be able to speak intelligently about your favorite styles of music, and most importantly, have a collection of your own musical creations that you can be proud of.

Rationale: Music Production is designed for students that are interested in exploring music at York High School, regardless of previous musical experience in band, orchestra, or choir. This course provides all students the opportunity to learn about music without having any background or training.
