Learn the basics of arrangement, editing, and mastering and leave with an MP3 of you own song made from scratch!
Saturdays, Feb 16 + 23, 2-5pm
Music Production, offered in the Media Lab at AS220 Industries, is where anyone can create their own original songs, regardless of experience with music-making. In this class, both solo and collaboration projects will emerge through the process of learning the elements of music, song arrangement, editing, and mastering.
This workshop is split into two sessions. The first will focus on Logic Pro X music production software and will explore genre, basic music theory, and arrangement. The second session is focused on editing, mixing, and mastering. This workshop will feel like an open paint night, with a common prompt for everyone, to accommodate both experienced musicians with specific goals as well as those interested in simply learning something new. Participants can expect to walk away from this class with an mp3 of their own original music!
