dm2This past year, the Saint Viator music department upgraded its curriculum to incorporate the latest technology and innovation into the classroom with a Digital Music and Production class.

Led by Director of Bands Vince Genualdi, students in the class explored music composition and recording skills, developing knowledge of the music business, copyright laws, studio recording, and basic music theory needed to create electronic music. The class resulted in a SoundCloud account featuring music composed and performed by the students.

It’s such an amazing opportunity to learn the industry standard and gain real-life perspective and experience regarding this field,” said Genualdi. “The students are exposed to a whole new sector of the music industry and we were able to modernize our program, giving students access to the latest technology.”

New classes like this exemplify Saint Viator’s vision for the future – using the latest technology and innovation in the classroom while adhering to the tradition of academic excellence.
