No textbooks required


This class will require use of a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) that can import and/or export video for completing assignments and a personal computer or laptop capable of running a DAW. Students are allowed to use a DAW of their preference as long as it meets the above requirements. Experience or knowledge of a DAW is recommended, though not required - more on this below.

Not sure if your DAW can process video, or have questions about which DAW to use for your device? Contact the instructor at jordan.laurent@pcc.edu with questions.

Instructor comments:

The instructor will be using Ableton Live 10 Suite and Reaper for in-class demonstrations and application of musical concepts and recording, though students are allowed to use a DAW of their preference. If you are interested in following along or learning a DAW in this class, you can download a 90-day free evaluation version of Ableton Live 10 Suite here.
