Students will be using a 15” Apple MacBook Pro laptop with full educational versions of the following software: Adobe Design Premium CS5 (InDesign, Photoshop Extended, Illustrator, Flash Professional, Dreamweaver, Acrobat Pro, Adobe Bridge, Device Central, and Fireworks) and Apple Final Cut Studio (Final Cut Pro, Soundtrack Pro, Motion, and DVD Studio Pro). All software is registered in the student’s name and belongs to the student. Included in tuition is a student membership to the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada (GDC) and connection to local events, awards, inspiration, portfolio reviews, job opportunities and peer networking. Entry into this program is based on an application interview. Students will receive one-onone consultation and instruction. All instructors are professional designers from the print and electronic media design industries, chosen for their extensive technical knowledge and industry recognized expertise.

Electronic Music Production Electronic Music Production (Full-Time) The Electronic Music Production Program trains producers on a number of levels, from individuals who will be writing, recording and producing their own work, to individuals who will be recording, and producing other artists’ works, to composers who will be writing, recording, and producing work for commercial purposes such as scores for film, TV, and games. The recording industry has changed significantly with the ongoing development of recording and producing software, such as Cubase that now allows producers to work independently outside of the studio environment. Often you will find producers only using commercial studios to finalize the mix. The other instruments, vocals, effects, and mixing, will be taken care of outside of the commercial studio, saving significant money for recording artists. Students in this program will be using either a Mac or PC laptop, an audio interface, and the following software (all of which they keep): Cubase, Ableton Live, Reason, Native Instruments Komplete, Miroslav Philharmonik, and a mixing package. The students will register the computer and software in their own names. While students will produce the majority of their work on their own computer, they will also be working in some of Vancouver’s top commercial recording studios. Entry into this program is based on an interview. Students will receive extensive one-on-one instruction and consultation. All instructors are professional musicians and producers from the music industry, chosen for their extensive technical knowledge and industry recognized expertise.

Electronic Music Production (Part-Time) The courses in the part-time program are all standalone courses aimed at people who wish to produce their own music. Computer technology has revolutionized the music industry in so many ways, from changing the way that professional studios operate to creating an entirely new genre of home-based music production. Computer programs such as Reason, Cubase, or Ableton Live have made it possible for amateur musicians to compose, produce, mix, master, and publish very high quality music with remarkably little expense. All you need is a good PC or Mac computer, an inexpensive USB keyboard, and the software, which usually costs less than $500 per package. Programs like Propellerhead’s Reason (www.propellerheads. se) allow you to produce original music without the use of conventional instruments. You may create mixers, synthesizers, highly complex drum machines, and samplers that play thousands of beautiful acoustic and electronic instrument samples. Reason comes with a complete sampled array of orchestra instruments, loop players, and a mind-boggling collection of effects devices such as reverb, digital delay, vocoders, compressors, and phasers. For those who also want to record original analogue instruments such as an acoustic guitar, piano, or vocals, we use programs such as Cubase (www.steinberg.net) along with a USB interface to record your instruments or vocals directly onto Cubase’s sequencer on your computer. This program is also very relevant to people interested in using programs such as Ableton Live for live DJing or creating very complex loop-based music. The program is also very useful for interactive media designers who wish to produce soundtracks, sound effects, or sound bytes. You do not have to be an experienced musician to make very good use of the courses in this program.

Languages Mandarin Education for Adults Adult Mandarin courses are offered four times a year, in January, March, July and September. There are 10 weekly classes in each session. All instructors are fully qualified and experienced. There are 10 levels of adult Mandarin courses designed to help students progress from the basic Hanyu Pinyin system to advanced conversational skills. Although functional conversation is the focus of this multi-level course, attention to grammar, reading, writing and listening are also emphasized. Repeating the same level sometimes helps to give students more confidence and practice before moving to a higher level. From Level 6 upwards, the course materials vary from session to session in order to cover a wider range of sentence structures and topics. Adult Mandarin Grammar AMSC1009 The course takes three consecutive semesters to complete. Each semester covers different aspects of Chinese grammar and sentence patterns in great details. Students should be familiar with Hanyu Pinyin and have basic skills in speaking, reading and writing Chinese. Prerequisites: Adult Mandarin Level 5 or equivalent. Note: Course material included in price.

Adult Mandarin - Level 1 AMSC1001 This level introduces the official spoken language of China, Taiwan to people who are new to this ever-increasingly important and popular language. The modern Hanyupinyin phonetic system will make learning easy for the beginners. Daily conversations are focused on throughout the course. Texts are written in Pinyin and English alongside Chinese characters for reference. Note: Course material included in price.

Speaking of LEAP. “When I came to Vancouver, I thought I could speak decent English because I studied English at school for over six years and I was getting good marks for English classes in Japan. In fact, I thought I could take University Transfer courses after taking a few classes in LEAP. However, the first thing I learned in LEAP was how little I knew about English. It is not just about speaking, listening and writing, but also it is about how to think logically and critically, construct arguments, and present ideas. I had to learn how to think and present my thoughts in an ‘English’ way. LEAP trained me how to survive in the academic world. Students must have the academic skills to do well in school. I graduated with a Business Management Diploma from Langara in June 2011. I am proud of how well I did in school, but the skills which I gained from LEAP helped me in the real world as well. By understanding the importance of presentation skills, I started attending Toastmasters, public speaking practice meetings. By understanding the importance of effective communication in groups, I started volunteering in several organizations and became a board member. What I have done is an extension of what I learned in LEAP, and now I am a skilled presenter and well-connected in the community. As an organizing committee member, I have organized Sakura Days Japan Fair, an over7,000-visitor-size Japanese festival, and now I am helping the Car Free Vancouver Festival, one of the biggest street festivals in Vancouver. All skills that I learned in LEAP and the confidence that I gained in LEAP are the foundation of my achievements. “ Emiko Yumoto – Gumma, Japan
