You will be required to work independently and have time management skills with each project.

Topics will include but not limited to:

Garageband/Logic Review, Audio Engineering Basics, Composition, Podcasting

How is Music Technology II different from Music Technology I?
More emphasis on independent work, projects are more in depth, there will be required readings, Youtube summaries and listening assignments.
