This week at the digital music program, students were exposed to the simplicity of music production through collaborative activities. Using Fruity Loops as our Digital Audio Workstation(DAW), we spend most of our class writing songs, designing sounds, developing melodies. Students now can now recognize tempo and identify instruments with ease. Using a MIDI keyboard and our preferred DAW, we were able to experiment with different sounds and elements from different cultures. As the week progressed, we examined old classics like TLC’s “No Scrubs” for song structure and sampled the timeless “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” for our own track. Next week we will move on to the recording!
