Introduction to MIDI and Computer Music is designed to teach both music majors and non-music majors the basics of the MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) system, MIDI/audio sequencing software, and the virtual instruments commonly found in these systems, such as synthesizers and samplers. Course work includes a series of creative projects and several quizzes.

This course is geared for those with little prior technical training.

Prerequisites: a basic understanding of rhythmic notation, and some previous experience making music (playing an instrument, singing in a choir, writing songs, etc.). Students without any experience creating music will find some aspects of the course difficult.

The course is normally offered in the fall and spring semesters and during the second 8-week Summer Session. It is 3 credit hours.
