Play With Your Music

Play With Your Music (#PWYM) is a 6-week online course for audio production. So, after a good friend referred me to the website playwithyourmusic.org (linked above), I decided that it would be a great idea to try.

I’ve either made a great decision or a decision that will leave me ripping hair from my scalp in agony for the next six weeks. Any bets on which it will be?

This is what I’ve gathered so far:

We’ve been asked what our top 5 musical artists are to place us in a group of 30-40 mates.

We’ve got accounts through Soundation and SoundCloud, as well as a Google+ community where we’ll have Hangouts with industry professionals. (This week is Alex Case, an Associate Professor of Sound Recording Technology at the University of Massachusetts Lowell).

We’ll get two emails per week – one at the beginning with our assignment, plus supporting materials. Then, a second one asking us to share our creations.

There are happy little badges that can be awarded based on how well you perform.

That’s all I have for now.

All of this to say that I’m going to be documenting my journey through this class. The next course will be January 15th. You can sign up now, OR watch me as I flourish/fail HARD in this journey and decide if it’s something you want to do.

So far, I think it is.
