Electronic Music/ Studio Recording Technique
Utilizing Drew School’s Facility to it’s fullest potential we will feature a series of courses in the Drew Recording Studio. We will be running a recording session with a producer aimed at replicating the studio experience, playing with a drummer and pianist/guitarist laying down tracks and listening back to understand how recording can differ from live performances.
