THE MUSIC MAKER EXPERIENCE, led by Grammy nominated Bridges Academy Music Director KYLE WITTLIN is geared toward students who want to compose and produce their own music using GarageBand or Logic Pro X. Classes will start with a brief demonstration from the teacher, covering topics such as how to work with loops, how to program/perform original virtual instrument parts, how to mix, how to use automation to achieve increased dynamics and variety, how to sample, and how to score to picture. Students will then get to work on their own compositions. The last part of each class will be a live performance and sharing session where students will be able to share their work in front of the class or perform a song or original improvisation on an instrument of their choice. Enrollment permitting there will also be a guest artist performance at the end of the week!
THE MUSIC MAKER EXPERIENCE is always an inspiring class and will be open to all students with or without prior music production experience.
