Workshops in Music Recording and Electronic Music are open for students ages 15 to 18 at the college’s state-of-the-art Edward J. Yaw Music Technology Center. The sessions, taught by music professionals, take place July 11 -13 from 9 a.m. to noon. The workshops run simultaneously. The cost for each is $500.

In the Music Recording workshop, students will be provided with an overview of audio gear and terminology, and learn how to set-up for recording sessions and obtain quality sounds on vocals and instruments, while honing their listening skills.

In the Electronic Music workshop, students will learn the foundations of sound synthesis and develop their skills in design and production. They also will be working with Logic and Reason software, one of the most popular programs in the music industry.

On Friday, July 13, students in both workshops will provide a presentation of the projects they produce.

Registration is through the college’s continuing education programs and can be completed online by going to https://webadvisor.ccm.edu and clicking on “Continuing Education (Non-Credit).” For more information, contact Professor Todd Collins at [email protected] or call 973-328-5430.
