High school students can learn about the recording industry and get hands-on experience in audio and sound production at summer workshops hosted by Austin Community College. Sessions are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 24-28 and July 31-August 4 at Northridge Campus recording studios (11928 Stonehollow Dr.).
Hosted by the college’s Music Business, Performance and Technology (MBPT) Department, the weeklong workshops provide students an opportunity to learn about the industry, record a professional band performance, and create a remix.
“We are on the leading edge of the music industry in Austin,” says Geoffrey Schulman, MBPT department chair. “It’s competitive. These workshops give high school students a glimpse at the reality. They learn about the job opportunities and how to get started in the field.”
Students will learn how a song is conceived, constructed, and produced, from initial inspiration, rough sketch, and demo, to final recording and mixdown. Students also will learn the basics of music and sound production for film, television, and radio.
The workshops are open to high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Recent high school graduates also may apply.Back to Top
