This class is for high school students at Winnebago Lutheran Academy who want to learn how to make music on computers. We use Audacity and Garageband as our main tools, and we have fun almost every single day figuring out how to make music using audio and MIDI, but we also learn how to record vocals and instruments and even play guitar and drums if we need to.
We keep personal blogs (look on the right column of this page and click on our names) to help us remember what we've been working on, keep track of the all the decisions that we've made on our projects, and to share with our family and friends the music that we've created.
Where Have I Been?
I know it's been over two months since I've either written a blog article or posted any new student music files. SORRY! I've had two majors concerts in the last two months (Christmas and Let's Celebrate), so I've just beginning to breathe again.
The 1st semester Music Tech classes were working on their final projects at the end of December and 1st week of January. I'll be posting them soon for all of you to listen to. Eighth Graders who came to WLA last Friday for 8th Grace Visitation will remember Braden Frederickson's final project. That's be up here soon as well.
The new semester has started and 19 new students are taking Music Technology. They're learned how to cut and splice audio files in Audacity. Today they learned how to write thier 1st blog, and tomorrow they'll be blogging about Dance Project 2.
