Third Street Music School seeks an instructor to expand our Music Production programs. The newest program area of the school, the Music Production program consists of up to three levels of courses, lab hours, and independent study in our state-of-the-art Recital Hall. The lab consists of multiple iMac computers, interfaces, and controllers. Additionally, the studio boasts a central desk with Ableton, Protools, and more, as well as an array of preamps and microphones.
For fall 2021, Third Street will offer two courses: Introduction to Electronic Music Making (8-12 years old) and Song Production & Creation (12-16 years old). Ideally, one qualified Instructor would be chosen to teach both courses.
Introduction to Electronic Music Making | Wednesdays 4:00 p.m.
This course is designed to teach students the basics of songwriting, beat making, and creating music by using hands-on, projected-based learning. It is a structured course that begins with a focus on basic compositional and musical elements, song forms, premade loops and samples, software/hardware functions, and basic sound recording. The class completes the year with a final project portfolio and performance.
Intermediate Song Production & Creation | Fridays 4:00 p.m.
Students develop and grow musical concepts and technical skills by writing more advanced music and utilizing more advanced software. This class includes full-length works, video media, and more. Topics include basic recording and engineering, sampling and synthesizers, advanced composition, plugins, and more. The class completes the year with a final project portfolio and performance.
Lab Hours | Wednesdays & Fridays 5:00 p.m.
Lab hours allow students the opportunity to continue working on projects or experimenting with new ideas on their own or under the supervision of the instructor. Students can also reserve time on the main desk to access the full suite of software and equipment.
There will be an emphasis placed on project-oriented learning, collaboration and self-evaluations, and music creation in all classes. This course will be taught on-site and in-person with the possibility of some students remote during the lab hours.
Additional teaching opportunities including independent production lessons and winter/summer production workshops may be available depending upon enrollment and programming needs.
