The city government through its SHEEP-Computer Literacy Program (CLP) is embarking on another training to empower musically-inclined public high school students here.
SHEEP-CLP head Percival Pasuelo bared that a two-day training-workshop on digital recording and songwriting was scheduled tomorrow and Monday (July 30) to hone the skills of the participants on the art of music using the latest technology.
“The first day of the training will teach the participants an idea on how to encode their musical composition into electronic music using the simple-to-understand Noteworthy Composer,” he said.
“Noteworthy Composer is a Windows-based music notation software that allows one to create, record, edit, print and play back musical scores in pure music notation.”
Pasuelo explained that this tool is proposed to be integrated in a classroom setting under the Music Arts Physical Education and Health (MAPEH) subject.
Meanwhile, a workshop-training on songwriting was also scheduled on Monday with the multi-awarded, songwriter, composer and environmentalist, Joey Ayala as the mentor.
“Ayala is expected to discuss the rudiments of music composition and will tackle the tips and tricks or techniques in songwriting,” Pasuelo disclosed.
This training, he said, will prepare the participants to upcoming music compositions and songwriting competitions that the local government is planning to organize in time for the festivals of the city.
“With this initiative and with the full utilization of computer technology, more knowledge, skills and talents can be discovered,” he opined
