Music – Undergraduate

 

Change an existing course

Music Studio Recording Tech

MUM

Senior (4xxx)

613

This package is requesting a change to the course description of MUM 4613: Music Studio Recording Techniques. MUM 4613 was developed quite a few years ago. As one of only a few music technology courses being offered at that time, it provided a broad overview of studio recording techniques. With the creation of the Bachelor of Music degree in Music Technology and Production in 2014, a large number of new music technology courses were added to the catalog. The content of some of these new courses overlaps with MUM 4613, creating a tremendous amount of redundancy in our music technology offerings. The faculty who teach our music technology courses would like to change the course description of MUM 4613 in order to focus the material being covered and avoid the current overlap with other music technology courses. This change will not affect the Program of Study for any degree programs, nor will it affect the existing learning outcomes for the course.

New Course Description:

This course will introduce students to the world of music production using music sequencing and recording software. Students will use a digital audio workstation that has a realistic graphical representation of all the instruments and effects used in a composition. They will learn how to create drum patterns, record audio, and mix and master quality sounding productions.
