  • Welcome to Music Media Technology

    Music Media Technology I uses Apple Logic Pro X software to teach the fundamentals of music creation. Logic Pro X is one of the leading MIDI sequencer/DAW combination software packages for Macintosh operating systems and is widely used in the industry.

    Students will learn how to utilize this powerful software product throughout the trimester by completing in class exercises and projects associated with occupations dealing with Multi Media/Music Production/Entertainment/Broadcasting/News Industry. Classes take place in a recording lab setting as well as a studio environment.

    Microphone technique, sound, music and voice work, editing, timing and many other skills are developed through our recordings.  The trimester will culminate with a major 3-week project that will be to write, rehearse and perform a showcase project. 

    The student has the opportunity to receive 1 elective credit from upon successful completion of this course.   

    Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success! 
     
     MUSIC MEDIA TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM INFORMATION
     
    At STEP we have 3 classes under the umbrella of Music Media Technology. 
    Music Media Technology 1, which is an overview of music, audio recording and media/entertainment occupations. 
    Once a student has taken MM1 we offer two level 2 classes, Music Production and Video Production.
    Music Production focuses primarily on music and recording.  A background of playing an instrument, singing ability or  recording experience is highly recommended to be in this class.  
    Video Production is a film based class which focuses on camera techniques and editing.  Students interested in media industries will find this class useful for basic skill understanding.
