Are there any folks here that teach electronic or experimental music (synthesis/production/techniques/composition)? I’d love to connect with other educators - I love teaching and it’s tough to find solid resources on lesson planning and teaching and learning when it comes to electronic music/sound (I realize that’s a super broad topic).
I’ve taught private lessons (synthesis and Ableton Live) to kids and adults and now I’m doing a monthly workshop series on beginner and intermediate techniques/topics. As that gains momentum I’m hoping to open or help facilitate a space that can host workshops, performances, etc. It’s awesome seeing the work that S1 does and it would be lovely to hear about other orgs/spaces doing similar things.
So far I’ve done workshops on basic subtractive synthesis, tape loops (heavily inspired by Amulets) and within the next month I’m co-teaching about west coast synthesis and Yamaha-style FM synthesis with 2 different friends.
Usually my goal with workshops is 1 hour of lecture (brief historical context, core concepts) then 1 hour of hands on/Q&A time and it’s always a balancing act trying to get all of that in and keep it engaging.
