Audio Recording

Students learn recording techniques, computer composition, digital technology and multimedia production and work closely with student musicians, faculty and guest artists on recordings.

The minor in Audio Recording is designed to provide you with applicable knowledge and skills in audio recording and music production. Within the context of a liberal arts degree in music, students develop competencies in aural and music analysis, the use of audio hardware and software, microphone theory and technique, and the application of sound in media. Students will also learn how to apply their knowledge of acoustics in the recording studio, edit and manipulate audio, solve technical and artistic problems, and communicate with performers. Skills are developed through the execution of projects in various recording situations, studio settings and musical genres.
