Vocal Recording

Vocal Recording focuses on recording technology to prepare a singer for a versatile career in the studio. Our founders and faculty have contributed to songs such as American Wedding (Frank Ocean), Hold On Longer (John Legend), and Mirrors (Justin Timberlake) that give them insider knowledge to the vocal recording process. This course provides singers with a foundation of the necessary concepts and terminology for recording vocals. Modern recording techniques will be explored and demonstrated, including the use of GarageBand, microphones, audio interfaces and best editing practices. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to record, edit and enhance their voice efficiently and effectively.

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Identify the different sonic characteristics of microphones
  • Configure a home studio to record vocals
  • Use GarageBand to record vocals
