Led by Grammy-nominated Bridges Academy Music Director, Kyle Wittlin, THE MUSIC MAKER EXPERIENCE is designed for students who own a Mac computer or iPad and aspire to compose and produce their own music using GarageBand or Logic Pro.

INTERACTIVE LEARNING: Each session begins with a comprehensive demonstration by the instructor, covering essential topics such as working with loops, recording live audio, programming original virtual instrument parts, mixing techniques, automation for dynamic enhancements, sampling, and scoring to picture.

Under the guidance of the instructor, they will explore creative avenues, experiment with different techniques, and refine their musical ideas.

PERFORMANCE & SHARING: The culmination of each class involves a live performance and sharing session, where students can showcase their work in front of their peers. Whether presenting a completed composition or performing an original improvisation on their instrument of choice, students will receive constructive feedback and encouragement from their fellow campers.

Join us for an immersive journey into the world of music production, where creativity knows no bounds and innovation thrives. Unleash your musical potential and bring your compositions to life with THE MUSIC MAKER EXPERIENCE!

THE MUSIC MAKER EXPERIENCE is always an inspiring class and will be open to all students with or without prior music production experience.
