Students will bring their composition, performance and music technology skills together to complete one project during the course of the semester. They will write, rehearse and perform their music. Then they will produce a high-quality demo EP. Finally, they will work with music industry professionals to create a plan to present their work to the public. Throughout the semester, students will engage in research, analysis and assessment of their own work and the work of their peers.
