Welcome To Studio Performance!

Welcome to the Berklee 2018 Summer Session course "Studio Performance". I'm really looking forward to spending some quality time and sharing my 30 years of recording studio experience with you. Please browse my web site, if you wish, for more information about me. I am thrilled to also welcome Juan Penopolania ( as my assistant. Juan will be handling all of the studio time scheduling for the course and is the first stop for any questions you may have regarding class times, studio scheduling etc.

The objective of "Studio Performance" is to introduce you to the recording studio process and terminology, to teach you how to prepare for a recording session, and to give you some tips and tricks to help you make your own special magic when the red light comes on!

In addition to class time, every student will be invited to schedule a recording session. These sessions will be held at  1260 Boylston St Suite 204 on 4 consecutive Wednesdays: July 18, 25 and August 1 and August 8.  Students will be required to sign up for their performance time slot in advance during class.  Students may record themselves solo or invite up to 2 other accompanists. (Sorry, there will be not be time to set up and record full drum kits). Please include a description of your performance when you sign up. For ex: "Solo performer-guitar and vocal" OR “2 performers, vocalist and acoustic guitarist, etc. This information will help us when it comes time to set the studio and will give you more time for the actual recording.

Please check the other posts on this page for information on preparing for your session, and for a posting of the most recent studio schedule. Regarding the schedule, please note that the schedule posted will may not be completely up to date and that all scheduling must be confirmed with Sarah.
