    Technology Project

Orchestration and Multi Track Recording


   Below, there are examples of  students' Technology Project.

   Students were directed to choose a melody from their books and harmonize, arrange, orchestrate

   it to include a minimum of four other voices/instruments, and sequence it using the keyboards in the

   Piano Lab..


   In the process students learned:

   1) to perform the piano part/s

   2) to harmonize given melodies

   3) to used creativity and improvisation creating four additional parts

   4) to apply basic orchestration concepts

   5) to explore the capabilities of the new digital pianos,

   6) and to apply technology by sequencing and recording the different instrument in

      different tracks.
