Classes in Recording, Composing, and Arranging.
Audio and midi recording, music synthesis, and arranging using Protools, FL Studio, Logic, Finale.
For those students interested in writing their own songs and compositions, we offer lessons in home recording, to show how to get those ideas down independently. Today's composer needs to have the ability to record alone at a professional quality. Using only a computer, microphone, and software, today's recording artists can preview their finished compositions at home before heading into an expensive recording studio. Whether recording live sessions or creating beats and manipulating sounds with music synthesis, students at Rockory have access to the latest audio software and a spacious facility for personal or ensemble projects.
We prepare our students for this with interdisciplinary recording lessons. These can be either concurrent or separate from instrument lessons. Arranging music requires knowledge of theory, and harmony. So these elements are combined with teaching the skills of current music technology.
