What do dance teachers use to cut music?
I just got hired for contract work teaching at a dance studio! I was told that I would need to cut my own music for my classes, something which I’ve never done myself. I have done some basic music editing for fun using my cell phone in the past, but I’m thinking that’s just not gonna work for this. Is there a popular music editing software out there used by dance teachers?
There are many ways for dance teachers to easily cut music. There’s really no need to invest in any expensive software for editing music. In fact the easiest and quickest methods are completely free.
If you’re a MacBook/iPhone/iTunes person, you already have everything you need. Just use GarageBand to edit your dance music in minutes. Once you’re happy with your cut, just click on the option to send it to your iTunes as a mp3. You’ll be then able to play it in class from any of your Mac devices. If you need visuals, there’s also a very helpful step by step video put together by TheDanceBuzz, a YouTube user…
I do lots of choreo for different dance studios in my area. There’s also Audacity. Also easy and free. This is for those of us who use Windows. But they also have it for Mac folks…
You can even now cut music using your mobile phone. There’s an Android app called MP3 Cutter. It works like a charm, a life saver especially on those bad days you’re really pressed for time or aren’t near your computer. I’m not a dance teacher. I’m hockey/dance mom, but a sound editor by trade. 🙂
