Discipline #4 in the LCMA method is music production. Once the student has an understanding of piano, singing, and writing songs, the final phase is to arrange and record those songs using a DAW or Digital Audio Workstation.
For beginners we use Apple's Garageband... introducing students to the basics of recording, signal flow, and mixing. For intermediate to advanced students, we upgrade to Apple's Logic Pro X and Abelton Live for a more in-depth dive into the nuances of digital music creation. Not every student needs to study music production, it is completely okay to focus on the piano alone, or piano & singing together but we strongly encourage students to try a little of each discipline to see what they are most drawn to.
