A virtual Community Day event, held over Zoom
Ok, so you have the great song written but how do you flesh out your recording with interesting parts that enhance and instrumental solos that are just what you want, how do you communicate your ideas to your players, what are the best ways to get exactly what you’re hearing in your head and get the perfect recording ?
From their LA recording lair, two seasoned veterans of the big stage and the big studio are the pros that pro songwriters turn to sculpt the final impressions that make their songs connect with audiences. They will lead a multi instrument workshop from their Studio covering tips, tricks, techniques .... and maybe a few stories... all geared towards giving you the tools that will enable you to navigate the recording process with confidence and ease. Don't miss this unique opportunity to learn from two inspirational instrumentalists.
