Online Courses

The following courses are open for guest registration. The password is music. All other courses require manual enrollment. I am in the process of putting these other courses together and hope to have them active by the middle of February 2018.

These courses can only be accessed after you complete the first two guest courses listed below. If you would like to pre-register for our advanced courses, please click here.

All our courses have their own forum as well as step by step short videos describing in detail what we are discussing. Due to our guest courses being open without registration, you will not have access to the forums within these courses. You can click on the links below to go to that particular course.

Audio Basics 101. The basics of audio are the fundamental principles of what makes up sound and how it disperses in space. By understanding these basic principles, you can learn to make better decisions when recording, mixing or designing your studio.

What Mic Should I Use? When you’re shopping for new microphones, you’ll encounter a wide variety of mic types spanning a vast range of prices. The glut of specs and features associated with the hundreds of available models can be confusing, leaving you with little basis for comparison aside from a microphone’s price. This will help you make an educated decision on what mic you need for your recording environment.

Audacity 101. Audacity is free mixing and recording software. It is not used for mastering and it is not considered a DAW, (Digital Audio Workstation). This statement comes from their own online community. This software is fine for recording for volunteer organizations or if you are just starting out Podcasting or doing volunteer audio recording.
