Past Projects

Tutorials and Personal Reflections on Learning Max/MSP Music Programming Software

Robert Freeman, a masters degree student in music education at Arizona State, engaged in a project where he learned how to use the application MAX and developed a related series of tutorials on using MAX. Max/MSP is an innovative programming language that has many potential uses for the music educator. These tutorials provide an introduction to the software for the novice programmer and computer user. As part of developing his understanding of MAX and ability to program patches, Robert referenced V.J. Manzo’s book Max/MSP/Jitter for Music: A practical guide to developing interactive systems for education and more.

Tutorials for Developing Music Performing and Creating Systems with Lemur (and connections to music education)

Sander DeVries, a masters student in music education at Arizona State, engaged in a project where he learned how to use the iPad app Lemur to design music performing and creating systems by programming graphical user interfaces. Sander developed related projects involving creating and performing music in Garageband with Lemur that he pilot tested with middle school students. Here are some of his video tutorials with connections to music teaching and learning.
