Music lab opens in MacCracken
A Learning Technology Center Music Computer Lab, established to promote the integration of technology throughout the music curriculum, has opened in MacCracken Hall. The lab features Macintosh computers, MIDI keyboards and software of special interest to the field of music, including software for music notation and sequencing, music theory and ear training, marching band charting and music education. There are 10 student workstations and an instructor’s teaching station.
The lab is the result of a funding collaboration between the School of Fine Arts, School of Education and Allied Professions via a federal Project Mentor grant, Miami’s office of computing and information services and the department of music.
According to Judith Delzell (chair, music), Patti Gregg, MCIS supervisor of technical support, was instrumental in the project initiation, planning and collaborative efforts related to the establishment of this lab. Gregg also worked closely with Brad Myers, coordinator of computer services in the School of Fine Arts.
Others responsible for bringing this collaborative project to realization include Pamela Fox, dean of the School of Fine Arts; Kristin Froehlke, associate provost for computing; Doug Brooks and Christy Hunt, School of Education and Allied Professions Project Mentor program; and MCIS staff Scott Apfelt, Tom Montgomery, John Moore and John Vaughn.
The music lab is open to all Miami faculty, staff and students noon-midnight on weekdays and 5 p.m.- midnight on Sunday. It is available at other times for class use.
