Technology at the Schwob School of Music

The Technology Area at the Schwob School of Music offers both academic courses for music students to pursue creative endeavors using technology, as well as production and consulting services to the Schwob School as a whole.

The minor in audio technology is a unique program designed to offer a rich set of experiences to music students, spanning a wide range of topics in music technology. Practical, hands-on experience is combined with the latest topics in the ever-growing world of music technologies. Students gain experience as recording engineers, live sound engineers, sound designers, composers, and researchers in this diverse field.

The Technology Area regularly interacts with all other areas of the Schwob School, and has provided support for everything from the Jazz Bands to the Wind Ensemble and Contemporary Ensemble. The Technology Area is also the primary sponsor of the Popular Music Ensemble, and maintains close relationships with other organizations like The Loft Recording Studio and Venue, JamGood Mastering, 88.5 WCUG, and others, and provides students with the opportunity to exercise their skills in a variety of settings.
