Composing

 
 
Who is it for?
This session will suit anyone who loves sound tracks and enjoys creating and recording new music.
       
A typical session:
After a welcome and a catch up, the class re-cap on their individual or group projects. The music session begins with a rhythm jam, incorporating musical concepts and introducing new chords and notes. Skills are developed here which aid students to compose with confidence on a variety of instruments.  Whether an assignment for another workshop (to provide background music for a relaxation workshop) or a picture-based stimulus activity, the students have the instruments and opportunities to create original pieces and record using professional software.
     
What will I learn?
Students will be introduced to basic musical concepts, rhythm, dynamics, instrumental techniques, compositional techniques and timing. Through the act of performing their original or established compositions, confidence and musical skills are developed steadily.
