Project Description

***This program is fully booked for the remainder of the 2018-19 school year; please let us know if you are interested in bringing Olive to your school in 2019-20!***

Program Description
Music is a universal language, and electronic music is a modern musical dialect spoken by young people everywhere. The art of the music producer, instrumentalist, singer, DJ, and composer are all linked with the tools of technology; in this residency students will get hands on experience with professional quality music production gear. Electronic Music Exploration allows students to find where they fit, whether it is in the studio, behind the controls, or on stage performing.

Final Product
The students will prepare a showcase of music and media as a team.
