Let’s face it, the world has changed – like everything else, the world of music has moved into a digital age. If you love music, but aren’t keen on playing an instrument, then this is the course for you. Learn to make music from the comfort of your own room on your laptop. Digital technologies have allowed us to explore an infinite number of sounds and combine them to create all new kinds of music. Even if you have never played music before (especially if you’ve never played music before!), this course can help you become a modern-day music maker.

You’ll start by exploring a few different programs that will be available to you through this course. Each program will show you different ways of editing, combining and creating music. You will listen to many different kinds of music from different genres, decades and artists. Once you understand how to use the programs, and the different sounds that are out there, you will be ready to create your own purely digital song.
