OUR PROGRAMS

Studio Time for Students Taking Recording Engineer Classes

Students who choose our on-site recording engineer classes participate in a collaborative weekly group class/session in the studio focusing on the week's discipline. Students also have weekly scheduled one-on-one sessions for an hour and a half with their instructors, which are dedicated to the week's discipline. Each session focuses on the student’s exact skill level.

 

In addition to the one-on-one time, each student also has two hours of dedicated studio time at The West Barn focused on the week’s discipline.  Students are required to spend a minimum of eight hours each week in the lab.

 

   Students enrolled in our sound engineering classes have multiple opportunities to utilize the studio throughout the week. Working in the studio includes, but is not limited to, participating and assisting with studio sessions and events. Part of the curriculum consists of customized real-world projects for each student based on their long-term career goals. There will be multiple opportunities to experience special guest lectures and workshops hosted by some of today’s top music industry professionals.

DISTANCE LEARNING

This is not your typical online program. With the use of technology, we have created an interactive program for students who want to learn how to become a recording engineer but who can’t relocate to Tennessee. This program is the closest thing to being here in person. This option allows students to learn in their home studio environments while interacting with their instructors and other students in a virtual space.


Students who choose our DISTANCE LEARNING program will also be able to participate in a collaborative weekly group class/session in the studio focusing on the week's discipline. This class will be accessible via live stream or through our video library.
Distance Learners will have weekly scheduled 1 1/2 hour one-on-one sessions devoted to the week's discipline. Each session will focus on the student’s exact skill level.

Whenever possible Distance Learners are invited to participate and assist with studio sessions and scheduled events. Part of the curriculum consists of customized real-world projects for each student based on their long-term career goals.


Just like with our on-site program, there will be multiple opportunities to experience special guest lectures and workshops hosted by some of today’s top music industry professionals.
 

Distance Learners are required to have the following tools:
•A functioning computer with the ability to access the internet
•Pro Tools
•A good set of speakers
•A quality set of headphone
•An interface
•A Dynamic Instrument Microphone
•A cardioid condenser microphone


 All equipment must be approved prior to the start of class. It is the student's responsibility to maintain all equipment throughout the duration of the program to ensure they are able to get the most out of their classes.
