Sampling Across Genres – Introducing Students to Sample Based Music Production Using Logic Pro: Appu Krishnan

presented by Musicians Institute

Much of today’s popular music uses sampling technology from a variety of musical genres. Classic early examples include: The Winstons, Queen, David Bowie and the Mellotron. Musicians Institute instructor Appu Krishnan will introduce students to current artists who are modern pioneers in sampling technology, including Kanye West, Daft Punk and Dr. Dre. Krishnan will also show how music from the 60’s and 70’s can be imported from a CD to Logic software and edited, synched and then used in a brand new song. Students will be asked to participate in this workshop by coming onstage to beat box and sing.

*This class is best suited for grades 9 – 12
