This course is designed to instruct students in the area of recording technology, as well as engineering, mixing, and mastering music. The first semester will focus on the correct use of microphones (techniques, placement, selection), Garage Band, Pro Tools, and other related recording software. After students have a good understanding of the tools, they will focus on a collaborative project that consists of recording, mastering, and engineering their own EP using musicians from La Salle's music department or midi instruments/samples/patches. That collaborative project will be completed by the end of the second semester. A student does not have to be a part of the music program to take this course. Ask your counselor today!

Basketball overview
Video Produced by Jason Bempah '18


Our program boasts one of the finest basketball traditions in the Philadelphia area. La Salle competes in the famous Philadelphia Catholic League, one of the most storied high school leagues in the US.

Looking Back…

The Explorers graduated only two seniors in 2017. Senior Matt Paulus, a two-year starter, moves on to Ursinus College. His backcourt mate, Jarrod Stukes, will begin his career at Clarion University, in January of 2018. Stukes, a two-time All-Catholic, and Paulus made up the last members of a state runner-up team in 2014. Both will be missed for their leadership and steady guard play.

Looking Ahead…

With only two seniors on last year’s team, the Explorers checked in at tenth place in the Philadelphia Catholic League. Hopes are high with so much experience returning for the 2017-18 campaign. Two seniors that saw extended playing time last year were Sean Simon and Matt McMahon. Both will be expected to contribute heavily if the Explorers will have better success this season. Also rounding out the senior class are Nick Hoffman and Isaiah Snead. Both players will add depth and physicality for the Explorers.
