Rhythm Factory

For students in 4th Grade through High School WITH or WITHOUT musical experience.
3 to 5 sessions.

Rhythm Factory is a technology based music program which gets students using computers to create their own musical compositions. While they’re at it they’re engaging with a world class composer, gaining comfort with setting up and using computers and learning the basics of rhythm, beats, instrumentation and form.

They work in closely cooperative teams to develop both a sense of professionalism and pride in their work. All sessions are hands-on, creativity and outcome based intensive learning sessions.

Rhythm Factory features a culminating event in which an ACO instrumental ensemble performs for the students and works with them to incorporate the student’s compositions into their performance.

Schools often choose to follow up the Rhythm Factory program with a hands on percussion/drumming program designed to get the kids performing the beats and compositions they’ve created on the computers, oftentimes on instruments of their own creation.
