Today’s Drummer: Creating Ableton Live Loops and the Drum Set: Donny Gruendler

presented by Musicians Institute

Many of today’s biggest rock, pop, R&B and hip-hop acts use laptops, loops and Ableton Live to augment their live stage performances. Today’s high-profile drummers are emulating, embracing and working with DJs and newer technologies. This workshop will demonstrate how to create loops and backing tracks within Ableton Live. Students will participate interactively by recording hand claps, voices and various sound EFX into the instructor’s laptop and be shown how to make great loops out of these “on-the-spot” textures.

*This class is best suited for grades 9 – 12
