Colby Johnson Audio Internship

Dr. Pras notified me that she would be out of town for an Audio Conference this past week and it was my duty to cover her class for her. She asked that I cover the topics of how to use the DX7 and how the midi routing worked inside of the studio. So to prepare, I went down to the studio and gathered any information I might need and created a lesson plan. I wrote down any important discussion topics and key points I thought was important for teaching these two things. Within my lesson plan I created spacing within various topics, to allow students who were interested to come forth and try the DX7 for themselves. I decided this was the most effective thing to do as for me personally, I typically learn better if its hands on. Among the class of around 15 or so I had 6 or 7 who seemed really interested in what I had to say and teach, this for me was a very rewarding feeling as the knowledge I had spent so much time acquiring became of practical use and had a positive impact on others. After I had taught the class I stayed for around half an hour to an hour late to help with any questions the students might have had. I exchanged numbers and emails with a couple of students and offered them my time outside of class to help them with their projects if my schedule allowed it.
