Composition Software

ETHS Bands maintains two software subscriptions for student composition, arrangement, and practice use.  Uses for this software are limitless, however here are a few suggested uses:

* Compose your own music

* Arrange or transcribe music

* Complete class assignments

* Enter chord changes to create improvisation backing tracks for jazz practice

* Enter a difficult rhythm or lick from your ensemble or solo literature to hear how it's supposed to go, slow down the tempo, and practice with

It is recommended that you purchase your own software subscription, should you intend to use these interfaces in great depth or frequency.  These ETHS accounts are for experimental use only.
