|Course||PROD 100 – Intro to Studio Production|
Once you have gained a foundation in audio engineering in ENGR 100, you are ready to step into the driver’s seat and learn the art of studio based music production. This foundational course introduces you to the role of the Record Producer, how to inspire musicians, develop songs and get the most out of a studio-based recording session.
This course focuses on the creative side of music recording and production. You will learn mixing and mastering techniques, editing, and critical listening skills. You will benefit from introductory music theory training, ear training, interval training, key signatures, chordal structure, triads and more. In addition to individual projects in mixing, tuning, editing and editing, you will also have the opportunity to take part in our unique cover songs project, where you will re-create hit songs from the 50s,60s,70s and 80s using only the technology that was available at the time. As part of this course, you will also produce a 2 song EP. You will learn to manage a project from start to finish, from finding an artist to laying down bed tracks, recording, mixing, editing and master.
Get mentored by active, award-winning producers (including Nimbus co-founder GGGarth Richardson) as you learn how to produce great music. You’ll also spend time training at our satellite campus, located at the historic home of Little Mountain B, working with real artists to record, mix and master great music.
