Music Technology

music note
  • Music Technology is a unique course that teaches standards in both music and technology. We focus on music literacy, piano proficiency and composition as well as computer use, learning enhancement systems and asynchronous communication. 

    At the end of the introductory course, students will leave the class with an MP3 of their original 2-3 minute song, the ability to read and play piano music and a firm grasp of how to succeed in an online college course.

    We currently have 29 computer/digital piano workstations and offer 3 levels of Music Technology: Middle School, Senior High and Advanced Senior High.

    Take a look at a video of our program from "SPPS Today". This video is a great introduction to some of the concepts we explore in the MT class even if it is about 10 years old.
