Another way to learn music other than playing the piano is through music making. Students can make music of their own through improvisation, composing in the traditional way on music sheet, or even composing through computer technology with specific music software, the magical “Garage Band”.
Here are a couple tracks made by Walter Chan who had his first exciting encounter using computer to make music.
The first track sounds to me like some background music set for a horror movie:[Audio: http://teresawong.dyndns.org:9001/audio/waltergp1.mp3]
The second track is also very interesting, sounding like music from some Southeast Asia ethnic group:[Audio: http://teresawong.dyndns.org:9001/audio/waltergp2.mp3]
