The objective of this project was to develop the necessary materials to facilitate the use of The Music Writer in the music theory class of Sacramento High School’s Visual and Performing Arts Center. The materials were designed to correct the deficiencies in the programs’ documentation, and include tutorials that sequentially introduce beginning students to the basic features of the program.

The course is designed to teach skills and techniques in music fundamentals while providing students with practical experience involving the current technological advances in the field. These materials will enable the students to utilize professional level software in their study of basic music theory. Specifically, they will be able to use the program to write a simple diatonic melody, which has been composed as an assignment for the course.
