A precursor to EP-491, Advanced Seminar combines master class and private lesson settings for the electronic production and design major. Master class topics include group assessment of each student's portfolio work, group critiques, and technical instruction as needed. Assessment and analysis tools are provided to discuss music composition/production as well as the integration of music and sound design for picture and games. Business and career preparations will also be discussed. The private lesson component allows each student to develop skills and musicianship with direct mentoring from the instructor.
