My mother and I were looking at other colleges after I graduated community college. I came across the Recording ConnectionÖand we were like, ĎOh my God, do other people know about this?í So glad I found them.
Now that I know how to produce music, I no longer have to pay other engineers to mix and master my band's music. This saves us a lot of money. As long as my mixes aren't terrible, our recordings will be free of charge.
The biggest difference in what I know now versus what I knew starting the program is you can have something in front of you and know what it does now that I have the background of how everything works, I wonít say everything but more than I knew. I know how and why this does this, not just how to use it but why it does what it does. So itís a lot of background and things I didnít know were as complicated as they are. Iím still learning but it was definitely an eye-opener. Everything that Iíve learned is building upon something else almost like everything is chain reaction when it comes to mixing. So now that I have a lot more of a background than I had before Iím a lot more comfortable.
I wanted to become a professional with my music so I signed up. Definitely one of the best things I've done with myself. One of the best experiences of being able to go in there every day, you know whenever I'm available, whenever they're available which is pretty much all day, I mean they have sessions pretty much all throughout the day and night. So that works great with my schedule and the guys down there are just great. There's a lot more that goes into just recording a track even if it comes down to just one instrument that I didn't even know after 10 years of recording on my own. I mean you can take hours to perfect sounds and tones. So I do that, I take my notes and I ask questions. I take my music very seriously and I think I learned a ton on my own but there's nothing like that experience and you know the knowledge you can attain from actually following a curriculum and the way you guys have it set up where it's one-on-one. It's not a classroom, it's nothing like that. you're working with someone whose actually in the recording studio every day. Its his job, it's not like he's a teacher. That goes above and beyond what I've every really wanted out of it.
