Play With Your Music
Starting November 1, anyone with an internet connection can learn the basics of audio production through a free 6-week online course. “Play With Your Music” is a unique collaboration between NYU Steinhardt and MIT Media Lab, bringing greater access to the world of creative music production.
“Play With Your Music” is a Mechanical MOOC production from P2PU and it is being taught by Associate Professor of Music Education and Music Technology, Dr. Alex Ruthmann and Research Assistant, Ethan Hein.
Using the latest music education tools available on the web, “Play With Your Music” will use the Echonest API to group cohorts based on musical taste. Participants will have access to Soundation’s web-based production space to learn the basics of mixing and sound editing. After making their own music, students will post their tracks to SoundCloud’s listening community and collaborate with each other via Google+.
