Students will learn the important relationship between the technology they have in their classrooms or at home and the creation of the music and sounds they hear on their iPods and on TV, in movies and video games. Student volunteers will participate in the program to help Brent create unique on-the-spot sounds and by the end of the show, an original song that will raise the roof! You will be amazed at the way Brent relates to students by bringing out the eager musician in each of them.  Music Technology WebSite
