MusicTech 2022


An electronic music composition and coding camp that goes beyond education

Dates: July 12-13, 2022
Ages: Recommended for 12-18

Dive into the world of video game music composition with MusicTech at Vanderbilt University. MusicTech offers an exceptional summer experience for teens with a passion for video game music and game design.

The program provides campers with the foundational tools of digital music creation and coding, combined with creative skills. You'll learn to compose original game music alongside likeminded technologists and industry experts. The program is based on methods and models used in the music technology courses taught at Vanderbilt Blair by Pascal Le Boeuf and in SummerTech, an award-winning computer science program since 2002.

Vanderbilt University’s MusicTech is much more than the typical summer camp experience. Discover the difference with a friendly environment of radical acceptance and "geek culture" where kids form meaningful relationships, grow socially and have a summer to remember!

MusicTech engages students through a combination of hands-on, production-based projects and group interactive experiences, learning a multitude of skills including but not limited to Logic Pro, Python coding and digital music composition.

Camp sessions are conducted in small groups and led by award-winning staff and are appropriate for all levels of experience, from beginners to more exerienced students. Topics include:

  • Work in Logic Pro X in our state-of-the-art studio
  • MIDI sequencing, sound synthesis and digital audio
  • Hands-on video game music composition projects
  • College-level Python programming taught in small groups
