Music Production 2

Music Production 2

Music Production 2 will allow students to build upon the skills learned in Music Production 1. In this class, students will become proficient with Logic Pro X, song composition, and music theory fundamentals. Students will learn the basics of how to use York’s recording studio, develop production skills to further the complexity of composition projects, and collaborate with fellow musicians to produce recordings with layers of audio and midi files. This class will continue to explore how popular styles of music are created and how students can produce similar types of songs, beats and sounds. By the end of this class, students will be comfortable using Logic Pro X, be able to compose various styles of music, and continue to develop a portfolio of original musical creations started in Music Production 1.

Rationale: This course is intended to be an avenue for students to continue their study of music outside of the traditional performance based classes that are offered (band, orchestra and choir).
