St. Jerome 8th Grade Recording Project
This year in Music class the St. Jerome 8th graders have been working on a recording project. They are making their own recordings, playing and singing various parts of various songs. The class has learned the history of recording, from the days of “Direct to Disc” to modern digital, computer based techniques. They’ve also learned about different microphones and how to set them up to record with. Utilizing a portable studio, they’ve been busy laying down tracks that they will later mix down onto a CD.
This project has given the students an opportunity to apply their musical knowledge and talents to something that they will be able to listen to long after they have moved on to high school. They will be able to say that this is something that “We” made in music class. The project will tie together all the things that they have learned about in music in a fun and lasting way.
