At Mix Major, kids (and teens) learn how to create music using digital music technology, regardless of their ability (or desire) to play a traditional instrument, sing, or perform in front of an audience. Unlike traditional music education programs, which focus on the performance of an already-written piece of music, Mix Major’s programs focus on the creation of original music based on the interests of the student. This creative process is called Music Production , and with a few exceptions, it's not being taught anywhere in our kids' school music programs: elementary, middle, or high ... View Profile
