home recording 101

As modern recording studio technology moves from big racks of effects and a slew of microphones to programs on a computer, it's easier than ever to produce and record your own music. If you're a songwriter, it's absolutely essential to have a platform to save your original ideas so you can share them with others. In short - knowing how to use recordingsoftware is becoming a must for the modern musician.

If you're looking to take your first steps in the recording world, join MAMM Instructor and Berklee alum Xander for a hands-on how-to for using DAWs (Digital Audio Workstations) to write original music, record demos, and mix. This 6-week course will cover everything from how to record your first track to mixing it down to a final product. The course will focus on the intuitive and easy to use Garageband, but material will be applicable across all DAWs, including Logic and ProTools, which are used in professional studios everywhere.

The 6-week Home Recording 101 class for students 12+up will be held at MAMM on Saturdays from 11am-12pm from October 14-November 18.  Tuition for the class is $150.
