Exploring Sound

New in 2016!

Music and sound are essential elements of game, movies, and other interactive experiences. Students in this workshop will explore how sounds are made and heard. Students will also learn the fundamentals of sound production and will be introduced to the basic process of writing and performing their own music.

Students will learn:
  • How to construct simple instruments
  • Basic rhythm and melody
  • Implementation of sound into games and animations


This course is open to students entering Grades 1 through 3.
