Music Club

Students meet weekly with other music lovers and share their favourite songs and music. Ideal for students who play an instrument, love singing, write poems/lyrics or are learning to work with samples and beats or to DJ. Also open to anyone who loves and appreciates music, even as a listener! Students will be taught song analysis and structure, and can find collaborators to work on their own musical projects and gain feedback within their community. They’ll be taught how to record their work and make it available for others to hear.

Schedule

Learning Goals

Help students develop their artistic integrity through the composition, documentation, and performance of music. Develop a creative and intuitive understanding of music as a cultural language.

About the Club Teachers

Other Resources

DAW: stands for digital audio workstation. These are some popular DAW systems, you may choose to work with. Students do NOT need to download every DAW.

  • Garageband (Macs only) Ableton Live 9 Lite (Macs and PCs)
  • Reaper (Macs and PC’s)
  • Audacity (Macs and PC’s)
  • LIMMS (Macs & PC’s)

Time Required

  • One hour of live classes each week. Optional writing, playing and recording time. This may be done individually or in a pair or group, as the student wishes.
  • Students may submit songs to be uploaded on the Music Club Playlist, where they can listen to each other’s favourite music.
  • Later on in the club, we will have some time each week for students to share a live or recorded version of their original work. This could be a chord sequence, a riff, some poetry or a melody. Others can then give feedback and ask to collaborate.
