MUSIC RECORDING SUMMER CAMP
Part of Summer Music Intensive Week!

Led by Mason alum and recording artists Andrew Cote and Thom Routon, Music Recording Camp will focus on recording, mixing, and producing original music in Mason’s state-of-the-art recording studio. Students will learn how to record vocals and musical instruments, mix their own songs and assist others, use a pro-digital audio workstation, and identify, use and place microphone types. A “release party” showcasing students’ recorded songs will be presented at the end of the week! (Students need not be musicians and may elect to work as recording engineers only.)
