High School Music Technology Camp

June 21-25, 2021

Designed for high school students with an interest in the intersections between music, engineering and computers, the Music Technology Camp introduces students to audio engineering and digital music composition through experiential learning.

Camp faculty will work closely with each student to learn concepts and skills in a variety of areas, including songwriting with digital audio workstations, audio engineering, acoustics, music theory and keyboard skills. In every class, students will work with hands-on, inquiry-based projects and experiments to develop an understanding of the concepts underlying modern music technology. Open to rising freshman through rising seniors in high school.

A limited number of spaces are available so please register early. Registration is open through June 11 or until all spaces are filled.
