SUMMER CAMP – AUDIO

Come and join us for 4 days of learning about audio recording. Our instructors will guide you through the major steps of the recording process including microphone techniques, placement for optimal sound, tracking, overdubbing, mixing and editing. A professional band will be on hand for students to record during their studio session time. However, students who are brave enough are also encouraged to bring along their instruments as well. The cost for the camp is very reasonable compared with other summer workshops of this nature.
