Topic: Using Java MIDI API classes in Introductory Programming

As an alternative to teaching graphics and GUI design using Java in the introductory programming course, some efforts have been made to introduce music via MIDI in the intro class to allow students to experiment with computation that is not simply text-based. This seminar will introduce the MIDI classes that are included in the Java API and will illustrate some uses of these classes in an introductory Java programming course.
