Mapping The Vihuela: A Programmers Approach to Chords
July 31, 2014
9:00am - 3:00pm
Join software engineer and professional mariachiero Juventino Mejia, Jr. for a hands on session on the intersection of technology and mariachi music. Learn how a professional software engineer created a new software program that maps the musical chords of the vihuela, and the logic behind the software.
The workshop will include hands on training and instruction with the vihuela, and also highlight basic music theory, basic math skills, and an introduction to computer science techniques and topics.
Through the use of visuals and analogy you will learn how a programmer would innovate a visual aid to teaching vihuela and other acoustic instrument chords on a digital platform that is easily downloaded and shared.
