About this event

"The Art of Sound: Music Production For Beginners" is an introductory course for aspiring music producers and artists looking to record their own works! During this 7-week course, participants (ages 16+) will learn the art and technology of music production to create professional music compositions with equipment they have at home - a smartphone, tablet, computer, or home studio.

The Art of Sound is sponsored by ASC Culture Blocks, a community partnership with Mecklenburg County. This FREE workshop is a chance to develop your creativity as a Music Producer.

Week 1: The Art of Music Production

Week 2: Listening Like A Producer

Week 3: The Digital Audio Workstation (DAW)

Week 4: Exploring Midi & Software Instruments

Week 5: Strengthening Your Musical Productions

Week 6: Mixing and Mastering

Week 7: Music Production Showcase

During these unprecedented times when creatives have limited access to creative work space, we believe it's imperative to resource creatives with the tools necessary to create digitally. Be it to create a demo, to release an EP, track spoken word, or to make an audio book, The Art of Sound gives participants tangible steps to create content from the comfort of their home.

Instruction by Stellar-Award winning, Curt Keyz.

Each week, participants get first-hand instruction on developing their creativity as a music producer along with learning the technical aspects of music production, including how sound is translated into audio signals, recording techniques, and effects such as reverb, delay, and compression.

By the end of our 7 weeks together, participants will be able to 1) Use our Production Check-List to run an efficient and well-organized recording session 2) Record and edit tracks according to their predetermined vision for their work and 3) Evaluate a song's mix with critical listening on different devices (ear buds, in the car, sound system, computer, etc.).
