Only Ears – The Art of Recording I and II:

Instructor: Evan Margol
Time/Days: Determined by student/teacher availability
Ages: Middle/high school to young adults. Maximum of 4 students
10 weekly sessions of 90 minutes each

Cost:  $320.00  Scholarships are available

Description: This course, held in our new, state-of-the-art Recording Studio, will enable any student to be prepared for audio recordings in today’s modern studio. Learn how to record live drums, guitars, vocals and bands in our acoustically tuned and treated performance room. Proper use of microphones, studio setup and software basics will be taught. This course will be as fun as it will be insightful. Featuring a very “hands on” approach, the student will quickly “get in the field” and start recording almost immediately. No materials necessary for this course, only your ears. No special requirements.
