• In Music (Digital Production), you'll spend a great deal of time music sequencing – creating musical ideas on a computer. You will learn how to create individual loops (a loop consists of one or more bars of drums, bass, chords, etc.) and then combine these into a full piece or song. Understanding the basics of music theory will help you to create your pieces.
