The Bachelor of Arts in Music Technology is a synthesis of traditional musical training and application through new technologies. Students develop skills in areas including music composition and theory, recording, sound synthesis, sound design for film and theater, audio for film/video and multimedia, film scoring, notation and sequencing, orchestration, interdisciplinary collaboration, music business, and instrumental/vocal performance. Working alongside faculty, Music Technology majors compose original music and collaborate on artistic works and projects with students from across campus. This combination of academic study, creative work, community involvement, and hands-on training produces well-rounded musicians and digital media artists.
In addition to being award-winning composers and audio engineers, the Music Technology faculty and staff are dedicated and engaging educators. Their professional experience ranges from electronic and classical music composition for the concert hall and media to audio engineering for studio recording, broadcast, and live sound reinforcement.
