Making Music at Universal Studios

Making Music at Universal Studios

Members of Elwood-John H. Glenn High School band, chorus, and orchestra recently received the unique opportunity to experience the work of a movie musician. The students flew to Orlando, Florida where they participated in the Universal Studios Stars Performance Workshop. Each group got the chance to work with a Producer, Audio Engineer, and Video Engineer to create the music, voice overs and sound effects for a scene from Frankenstein.

Students prepared the music prior to their trip and once in the studio, they recorded the music and created all the sound effects for the movie scene. Several students also had the opportunity to do voice overs and solos for the project. In addition, the exciting trip allowed students to learn about careers in music related audio production and the Foley arts.
