For this week, I had to finalize what I wanted to do for my Big Project and what I wanted to do for my Peer Teaching assignment.
Trying to determine the topic for my big project was actually very difficult. Having so many options to choose from, It was difficult for me to narrow it down to one. I knew I wanted to do something music related but wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with music. After discussing things with Professor Whalen, he helped me narrow it down to doing an EP. I want to do an EP in the “pop/rock” genre to offer me a little challenge. I thought about all the resources I could use and I definitely can make a successful project out of them.
For the peer teaching subject, I found the program “midi2jamz” which allows you to replicate the sound of a midi keyboard with any song you want to. It didn’t sound the best but it was definitely interesting watching the keyboard play every aspect of a song. My only difficulty with it was you can use different instruments but I couldn’t find out how to do it. It was still a fun task to teach and I believe my group enjoyed it too.
