Through our Music Technology curriculum students learn how music and sound functions in our society. In our music technology lab students explore the many ways sound is used in media through learning about synchronized sound. Students also learn how to compose! When composing students not only learn the traditional way music is notated but also learn about loop based composition.
Loop based composition is the primary way music is made today and students are able to combine their traditional music education and apply it to composition techniques used in a wide array of genres including hip-hop, jazz, and rock.
Students are always creating music and media through technology in our state of the art lab that includes midi keyboards at each station as well as iPads. Please visit mrfahrenbach.com to learn more about our music technology curriculum.
“I am most proud of my connection with Walt Disney's family and the Walt Disney Family Museum. I have had the honor of working with The Walt Disney Museum to create curriculum based off of Walt's use of technology in the Arts. Through my relationship with the Museum and Walt Disney's family I have also been able to share artifacts and stories with our students about our school's namesake that allow students to see first hand how technology and the Arts can truly capture emotion in a meaningful way.”
