This digital music class is not like any music class you’ve ever heard about. It’s more than using electronics to create music (which we will do). We’ll also be creating our own instruments- drawings that sing, 3D printed instruments, virtual instruments, and we’ll write programs that create music in real time. This is more than a music class. We’ll integrate art, technology, engineering, and programming to create never before seen instruments, and never before heard sounds.

There are two types of photos: one simply to record your memories, an exact replica of a scene you want to remember; the other is a form of expression, where you aim to provoke the viewer’s senses – whether it be how vast and open a field of flowers can look, or the warmth and coziness a small cottage might have. Learn how to explore your world through photography. There are so many amazing subjects just waiting to be discovered through the lens of your camera or smartphone! Learn how to enhance or manipulate your photographs like the pros, using web-based editing software.
