Make music with technology
Young people can create their own tunes at a music technology course which starts at the Atrium in North Walsham on June 4.
The course is aimed at 13 to 18 year olds who would like to use computer software to create rock, pop and urban tunes with the help of expert tutors from Community Music East. The six week course will cover all the essentials, such as beats and loops, drum programming, virtual synthesisers, audio recording, samples and special effects.
Clara Wiseman from CME said: “On this fun and friendly course young people will find out everything they need to know to get started making their own music. We’re already running band skills course in North Walsham and hoping this technology-based course will be just as popular.”
CME will be extending its music programme at The Atrium in the summer with Rock Camp and DJing.
