Why take electronic music lessons?
Cameron’s lesson overview
In lessons we will be surveying modern techniques in music production. More specifically, we will cover the basic skills needed to create music with the Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) Ableton. In lessons we will explore music making with focus on production and will approach each topic with explicit expectations of artistic and musical applications. After several electronic music lessons (and lots of home practice) you will be able to make a song from start to finish using Ableton.
Goals: Gain proficiency in the Ableton music production environment. Learn basic concepts and techniques of computer-based music, composition, and performance. Students will be exposed to the essentials of digital audio, workflow, musical acoustics and psychoacoustics, audio engineering, sound analysis, and synthesis.
