York Community High School

Music Production 3

Music Production 3

Music Production 3 will allow students will continue to develop their skills as a composer, songwriter, and music producer. In this class, students will develop a thorough understanding and proficiency with Logic Pro X, the DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) and the York Recording Studio. Students will apply the recording techniques and composition skills to create more advanced and complex musical projects. By the end of the semester, students will independently write, record, produce, and release an EP (Extended Player) consisting of at least three original songs that revolve around a central musical theme or concept. Students will use an online platform (like Bandcamp.com) to support a digital release of their EP. The students will also cover topics regarding how to create CDs of your work for distribution and how to copyright original work

Rational: This course is intended to be a workshop for students to continue their study and creation of original music outside of the traditional performance based classes that are offered (band, orchestra and choir).
