RYTMO PROGRAM DETAILS
The RYTMO program is comprised of four (4) comprehensive courses that each run nine (9) weeks. Classes are held THURSDAYS after school for two (2) hours - 4pm to 6pm (Levels 1 & 2) and 6pm to 8pm (Levels 3 & 4). The RYTMO program takes approximately 1 year to complete (with breaks and holidays off between courses).
Each level builds upon the last as students gain hands-on experience in Music History, Music Theory, Commercial Songwriting, Digital Recording, Music Technology, Vocal Exploration, Instrument Lessons, Performance Techniques, Live Audio/Engineering, the Business of Music and Project Development.
By providing a fun and highly relevant approach to commercial music technology and recording, participants will develop practical skills in which to express their creative talents, attain greater personal achievement and gain fundamental occupational skills for the music industry. At the same time, RYTMO is committed to teaching life-enriching skills like goal setting, project planning, leadership skills, professionalism, community service, group interaction and disciplined behavior that will help prepare students for a future career in anything they do.
Music Technology is the merging of music with computers and software. With the rise of digital music, video gaming, cell phone ringtones, film & television and the internet, this is a new and highly sought out profession in today’s industry. Along with our unique custom curriculum, RYTMO utilizes the prestigious Berklee PULSE Music Method for online training. From Beethoven to Mars Volta – from Count Basie to Tupac and beyond, students learn and experience everything that has to do with music production.
