Studio West Offers After School Workshops for Students
As the new school year begins, students are once again getting to create music at a world-class recording studio by participating in the Studio West After School Workshops. The workshops are led by Andy Walsh, who has been associated with Studio West for over 10 years and brings a wealth of experience as a producer, engineer, and musician. Andy is a 2012 graduate of our own music production program and also holds a B.A. in Music Humanities from UCSD but, most importantly, he creates an amazing environment for students to explore their musical creativity.
The workshops center around collaborative and individual projects that challenge students, giving them the tools they need to make their musical ambitions a reality. Students develop their skills by listening to and critically analyzing the music they love. From this insight, along with the experience of working in Studio West’s professional recording facility, students have the unique opportunity to make recordings that bring their creative visions to fruition.
Students meet weekly for 90 minutes in focused groups of three to six students analyzing music, working on original compositions and arrangements, and ultimately recording their performances in the amazing studios. Students learn production techniques and get hands-on time with industry standard hardware and software packages such as Ableton Live and Pro Tools.
Recruitment is ongoing and Andy and the Studio West team are always happy to offer tours of the studio to interested students. We look forward to hearing from you!
