Students will begin this course with an existing demo or fully written song. They will examine songwriting concepts that are vital to the production process, receive constructive feedback from their fellow songwriters and an experienced music producer, and create a professional recording. Students will study the art of music production, engineering and recording regardless of the recording equipment and software that they have access to. They will learn mixing, editing and recording techniques, enabling them to bring their song vision into fruition.

Topics Include:

  • Song analysis and planning
  • Recording, editing and mixing techniques
  • Production Techniques

After completion you will:

  • Know the basics of producing and recording
  • Identify and use specific recording techniques
  • Understand and use MIDI production techniques
  • Complete a recording project using specific editing and mixing techniques

What to Bring:

  • Demo recording of a song
  • Laptop and Headphones.
