“I have this fancy computer lab. Now what?!” This hands-on course will take you through a variety of engaging projects for the secondary general music classroom. While these projects utilize computers, the focus of the course will be on developing the skills required to create engaging projects for any general music class, regardless of available technology. Learn curricular design, practical applications
of the open-source digital audio software Audacity, and how to choose affordable recording hardware for use with student projects. You’ll complete a series of projects, interspersed with technical and philosophical discussions that will inform future teaching. Participants are required to bring a quality set of headphones (no earbuds, please) for use in the creation of their projects. It is also recommended to bring a flash drive (4GB capacity minimum) for saving your work.
