Firstly, let's be clear that this course, unlike others, is not all theory. The course is about listening to our audio examples, learning what makes a good recording, understanding how things can go wrong, then making your own recordings and having the option of getting them listened to and commented by us.
But you do need to understand what's behind the sounds that you will hear and create. And that's where you need the 600+page online Course Manual.
We have included everything you need to know, and we've left out anything you don't need to know. Music Production and Sound Engineering are exciting things to do. Our 600+page online Course Manual will help you learn in an exciting way.
You can complete your entire course in as little as twelve weeks. Or you can spread your course out over as long as two years if you wish. Learning Music Production and Sound Engineering by distance learning is totally flexible in this way.
Many of our students like to download and print the course manual, normally in two volumes. The course includes downloadable artwork.
Next, let us tell you about the Audio Examples in the twelve modules of the course...
All of the audio material is delivered to you online to load into your digital audio workstation (you can use a software or hardware workstation).
Each module (12) contains not only Audio Example Files demonstrating the material covered in the online Course Manual, but also audio material demonstrating the Practical Assignment Project for that module. You get to hear work done to a professional studio standard, and also some less-than-perfect recordings so that we can show you how things can easily go wrong, and explain how to avoid these problems.
