Gary Atkins – Apple Computer Lab, Guitar
A big welcome back to “Apple Distinguished Educator” Gary Atkins! Gary, who hails from the centre of the universe – Toronto, Ontario – will return to Camp this year to help participants combine their musical energy with technical innovation. He has worked with hundreds of musicians all over North America in many different areas of music and is known for his knowledge and expertise.
Using programs & computers provided by Apple Canada, Gary will teach students how to use technology to their musical advantage. The possibilities are endless. Students will learn how to write, record, and practice with the computer as well as do other interesting and practical things that will help to develop the musical mind.
And you don’t have to be a teenager to appreciate this technology! It’s very easy to use and Gary is there to help you to work your way through it. You too could be recording at your home, transcribing tunes, and generally just taking your musical and technical knowledge to the next level. Don’t be afraid! Give it a try!
Gary is ALSO an accomplished musician and will be one of the core teachers for the guitar program. Welcome back Gary!
