We pick up where we left off last time, with Functions.

Like I presented in last week's lesson, a function is like a recipe.  It's most effective when it can be used over and over, but it is also effective to keep your ideas organized into one group.

We will review that again, but Monday we will move into a new project (Project 3a), and bring back the concept of Effects.  This is where a computer can really enhance your musical production.

Let's try to make as much of our code included in a function as possible from this point on.  It's easier to review, update or repair that way.

Once we have Functions down, around Wednesday or Thursday we will be moving into Lists, which many of you have wanted since seeing those "HipHop Beats" with the 1s and 2s instead of just 0 + -
