Make.Music.Tech. (MMT) is a group of students, teachers, engineers, hobbyists and musicians who collaborate with one another to explore intersections between music and the maker movement. MMT hosts workshops and meetups in which members of the Harrisonburg community learn about electronic instruments, prototyping, coding, music synthesis, fabrication, and many other skills. We hope to discuss the challenges and successes of developing our music/technology community and how groups like MMT can engage community members from diverse backgrounds to enhance students’ and teachers’ experiences in and out of schools. Attendees will also have opportunities to make, learn about, and play with Scratch, littleBits, Arduino-powered MIDI controllers, analog synthesizer components, and chiptune music interfaces. Laptops and/or smartphones with web access are strongly encouraged.
