Are you Ready to Rock?

Five seniors are embarking on an independent study in applied music technology. Led by Michael Leeds, these students are exploring the art of recording, mixing, and producing music. Keep your eyes and ears open as these musicians record and produce their first album. They will organize and perform a live show and build some instruments along the way, taking a garage band to a new level.  Band members include (l to r) James Steven, Brent Wang, Aidan McMurray, and Wasay Ahmed.  Many thanks to Michael Leeds for helping to create this unique opportunity for our students.
