Create Digital Music
“Electronic Logic” is a digital music course using the Apple Logic Pro Electronic Music programme. It is for anyone interested in music or music making and works particularly well for people who may not have the confidence or learning to play a musical instrument.
People work in groups in our IT suite in order to develop their skills and confidence in using digital technology, compose and perform a piece of music from scratch, develop their skills and their peer networks.
