Recording Class - Take 2

Wow, first off, I have to make a public apology. My previous post is probably the most boring thing I have ever written. If any of you actually made it past the first sentence, then I double apologize for putting you through that. I think my elementary school book reports were more exciting than that.

So let's try this again.

Starting on September 29th, I'll be teaching a home recording studio class at Sequoia Adult School. It will be every Tuesday night from 7:00-8:30 at Little House in Menlo Park.

So what will you learn in this class? You will learn how to make professional sounding recordings in your living room. The great thing about it is that it doesn't require expensive gear. It's all about knowing how to use it. Not to mention your significant other will find you irresistibly attractive after seeing all the cables running through your living room.

The class will start from the ground up, so you don't need any prior recording experience. It's probably a good idea that you at least play some sort of instrument or sing, otherwise there is nothing really to record, which might make the class seem a bit pointless.

I'm recruiting people to sign up for the class. If you're interested, or you know someone who is, you can visit to register for the class. If the amazing clip art doesn't convince you to sign up, then I don't know what will.

Here are some links to a couple of songs that I have recorded in my home studio so that you can get an idea of the kind of quality you can get from a home recording studio.

Piano and Vocals
Heavy rock
Piano, Cello and Violin
