Music Technology with Brent Daniels

On Friday, April 12 students enjoyed a special Music & Technology Assembly by Brent Daniels provided by the PTA!


Brent Daniels is an award-winning music producer, composer, sound designer, songwriter and singer. His music has been used extensively in film, television and movie, TV and video game trailers for Disney Studios, Marvel Studios, Dreamworks, Paramount, Warner Brothers, Sony, Fox, Universal, HBO Films, Hulu, Netflix and more. Mr. Daniels' presentation demonstrated


The Assembly showed our students the important relationship between the technology they have in their classrooms or at home, and the creation of the music and sounds they hear all around their everyday experiences. Several student volunteers participated in the program to help Mr. Daniels create unique on-the-spot sounds and by the end of the show, we created an original song for all to enjoy!
