Recording Workshop's programs are expertly designed to cover the wide range of skills and knowledge involved in audio recording and music production.
Digital workstation and analog console operation, microphone selection and placement, tracking session setup and workflow, vocal comp and tuning, drum editing, post-production, mixing, re-mixing, mastering, sound design, restoration - these are just some of the studio skills learned by Recording Workshop students.
Music business practices, live sound reinforcement, studio acoustics and design - are a few of the broader topics included in the curriculum.
The CORE and ADVANCED Programs both offer extensive practical experience in learning these creative skills.

5 weeks - 180 hours
The CORE Program is the foundation for all Recording Workshop students. It is highly immersive (5 days per week, over 7 hours per day), and sessions are offered year-round with start dates every 7 weeks. Each day is a combination of two lectures and 3-6 hours of project work in the studio. The training is extremely hands-on and creative.
2 weeks - 80 hours
The ADVANCED Program is an optional extension to the CORE training that allows students to deepen their studio skills. The ADVANCED projects put increased demands on the students’ shoulders as they handle all aspects of session work. The ADVANCED Program is offered 7 times per year, and is usually taken in sequence right after the CORE Program.
