MPro Digital Recording
MPro Digital Recording is a comprehensive introduction to music from a contemporary pop perspective, incorporating lyrical analysis, song structure, vocal awareness, and sound engineering. As each aspect is covered, individual and social cognizance are emphasized; beginning with a trust contract and paring of students into groups, and ending in a formal showcase of each groups’ work, students will learn the communal aspects of song production, the power of the voice, and the social responsibility of lyric and melody. Each student will have the ability to use MRC equipment, making beats with Garageband on Apple MacBooks and recording vocals on MXL microphones, as well as receiving their own lyric books to jot down song concepts, write lyrics, or use as their own personal journals. From learning song production to participating in constructive criticism to sharing the perspectives of current events, MPro Digital Recording covers the many facets of contemporary pop music culture and the value of the trade.
