As a part of the DMA (Doctor of Musical Arts) program at Rice University, Makiko Hirata, a PhD student at Rice Shepherd Music School, had to pick an independent project that would promote music students as a performer and/or a pedagogue to their prospective audiences, presenters, and employers. With help and support of DMC staff, Makiko had made a series of youtube videos that explained the basics of Western classical music, relating it to broader topics of music history, theory, physics of sound, etc.
DMC resources used:
- DMC Equipment: 2 Canon Vixia M500 Video Cameras to record two different angels; 2 Sunpack tripods; 1 Edirol R09 Audio Recorder to recorder sound.
- DMC software: Final Cut Pro 6 to edit the videos.
