About this Grantee

Through “Music in the 21st Century,” Mr. Birmingham, Mr. Christopher, and Ms. Konopacki expand students’ music skills and exposure to technology careers. Students use technology to compose, arrange, and perform several digital music pieces including a soundtrack for a movie scene. Students study music history and learn how to incorporate past techniques into current technology. To relate their new skills to twenty-first century careers, students take field trips to observe music technology being used in the workplace
