Welcome to Sound Explorations: Creating, Expressing, Improving Communities.

This is our Getting Started Producing Music Learning Playlist.

This playlist is in process of being developed so you are seeing draft versions. 

Before Starting Read This First

1) You are about to try out something called a music learning playlist. Each “track” in the playlist is called a learning experience or “XP”

2) If you see a group # next to an XP, please try out the version that has the group # you were assigned – you can also try out other versions later.

3) The last part of each XP is “Share What you Learned” you can then move on to the next XP in the playlist.

4) We want your opinions and ideas. So, please fill in the survey at the bottom of this page after you try out some of the XPs.
