MUS | DAW Petting Zoo for Music Production

Interested in writing or creating music, or incorporating music production into your private or public school teaching? Intimidated or just don’t have the time to get started? Join Professors Ryan Shaw and Lyn Goeringer to explore Soundtrap, an easy-to-use web-based DAW (short for Digital Audio Workstation). Used by educators and casual music creators around the country, Soundtrap is an easy way to get your feet wet exploring music production. In the workshop, you’ll get familiar with the platform and dive into creating in a judgment free zone, as well as learn about other professional DAWs and how they might be used to create music or support your students in their goals to create.

Note: This workshop takes place in MSU Libraries’ Digital Scholarship Lab (2nd floor of the MSU Library). Please bring a pair of headphones. Each station will have a PC available, but you are also welcome to bring your own laptop if you would prefer.

If you need accommodations to participate in this workshop, please email beamerch@msu.edu

Workshop outcomes:
-Learn how to use functions within a digital audio workstation to build a musical track using samples or keyboard.
-Articulate the value of learning about DAW programs for your future career (teaching, performing, producing)
-Learn what features to compare to make a personal choice of a DAW platform
