Everyone Can Create Music with iPad College Course Album on Apple Music and Other Platforms
As a result of the pandemic, I developed a new and now very popular course combining my previous music technology curriculum with the Apple Everyone Can Create Music with iPad curriculum. In addition, students learn about the fundamentals of music such as pitch, rhythm, form, texture, dynamics, and instrumentation through creative projects rather than simply listening to a lecture and passing a test. This course is taught online in a synchronous modality and is open to all students as a liberal arts core (aka general education) elective, recommended for music majors.
At the conclusion of the course, students have the opportunity to share their final projects with the world through an Apple Music (and all other streaming services) album. Of course, they must grant permission for their work to be included. I also hold an album cover design contest for each release. I have found that, generally, students strive to create more polished products when this opportunity for exposure is granted and that they are incredibly proud of their work.
[Although I do curate the projects and some are not able to be shared, students who earn grades above a certain threshold are permitted to have their projects included. After all, most of these students knew very little about music production and the fundamentals of music before joining this course.]
In just a few days, our fourth album will be released. You can find a preview of it here:
I would be glad to entertain any questions about the course and its curriculum. Thanks for taking a moment to investigate my students' work.
