4 Aug 2020 from 6:00pm - 1 Sep 2020 until 7:00pm


Ever wanted to navigate your way through a bank of sounds and create contrast in timbre, re-create sounds or build a sound from scratch?

This course, offered by the University of Newcastle’s School of Creative Industries Community Music Program, is an invaluable step in your musical career and will be a fun and engaging experience, in a supportive environment.

Aimed at students aged 16 years and above, this course will help you expand your knowledge from the constraints of the traditional piano to an array of modern keyboards with various techniques to learn how to get the most out of your keyboard and devices.

Guided by Jesse Schadel, students will gain an advanced understanding of music technology including sound sampling, electronic synthesis, MIDI and digital audio workstations to use in recording, writing and live performances.

The course is delivered each Tuesday 6–7pm for 5 weeks, face-to-face at Newcastle Conservatorium of Music
