Intro to Music Production –  4:00-6:00 Every Monday beginning January 24

Classes to be held Virtually (via Google Meet). – Grades 5-12

Learners will be able to deconstruct popular songs in order to train and develop their ears. As producers, knowledge of basic music theory, instrumentation, the sonic space of a song, and production tools are essential skills in taking helping to guide artists from concept to product.

Each week, students will receive a song to study, along with comprehensive information about the artist and producers of the track. In the virtual classroom, we will deconstruct the song and analyze it for its essential parts: structure, lyrics, motifs, instrumentation, and sonic scape. Why do artists and producers make the choices they make? What sounds are used, and how can they be recreated? How do artists’ sample tracks? What makes a great lyric? What kinds of conversations are had by artists and producers in the studio? Together, we will train our ears through critical analysis and conversation. Love music? Share your passions and questions in this class!
