 Digital Music-Making : a Soundtrack to the Soul


Tools & Resources:


Note to Students: Please be thoughtful in researching for-profit colleges which can be VERY expensive in this field. Be sure to inquire about their Graduate Job Placement Rate!

NOTE: All media created or produced using APS Computers or Equipment should be appropriate for FM Radio play. This is in compliance with the APS Student Tech Agreement signed by students in agreement for using Technology in Aurora Public Schools. If you are unsure what can be used, read the Federal Communication Commission's stance on Obscenity, Indecency & Vulgarity. Read APS & Hinkley's Technology Plan.
