Questions we’re exploring

1. What does it look like to bring digital audio into the classroom?

Digital audio production is a relatively new field and includes an expansive list of functions and roles. However, with all new technology, we are still learning how to introduce students to it and what it looks like to teach with it in a classroom setting.

2. What skills does one acquire when studying digital music?

We know that students benefit in many ways from having music be a part of their lives. Digital audio brings a suite of skills to the table, like visual programming, physics, and music theory, and changes what we know about how music impacts students.

3. What does a creative community for music look like for students today?

Localized collectives and cyphers of young students are emerging across the world, starting their own local music movements, building communities and growing into the global music market. How can students work together to foster success in their own communities, and enter the global musical stage?
