Get Started with your Music Portfolio

The first thing we need to do is create your music portfolio and brand new project page. Follow the instructions in the video to complete this preliminary task. Remember, you can pause and re-watch the process at any time! Once you have followed the tutorial, Open the Sample Project Page with Steps and follow the progression. You may choose any piece of music that provides a personal challenge, use any instrument (even virtual ones!) and work in any size team. Don't forget to keep your portfolio looking professional!

Sample Project Page with Steps

Now that you have your own site, it's time to get started! Open this page during every lesson. Follow the steps and videos while considering your own song choice. You may progress at your own pace or come back to steps later on. Ensure that the level of challenge is appropriate when choosing your music and your instrument. Copy the sections in white to your own project page, then use the examples in the dark sections to guide your answers to each step. Can you answer questions such as "What are you learning?", "Why are you learning this?", "How do you know that you are improving?" and "What step are you on?" You may change your musical choice at any step but remember that the more steps you complete, the stronger your grade will be!

60 Second Essentials

At each step, you will be asked to demonstrate a skill from one of the videos found below. Try to select skills that relate to your song choice and personal identity. You could focus on guitar or spread your skills across multiple disciplines. The 60 Second Essentials videos are fast, so you may wish to pause, slow the speed down, or re-watch them if needed.
