About Your Recording Session
We are delighted to invite you to a professional recording studio to record a performance. I will be there to produce and provide creative direction as requested. You may choose to record any material you desire and may perform solo or invite a maximum of 3 other accompanists. Sessions will be limited to 20 minutes. HOWEVER, students enrolled in the class may combine their 20 minutes with other students (who will also be on the same session) from the class for more time. Students may not give their times to other students. A drum kit will only be available on July 30 and 31st sessions. Your session will be mixed and delivered to you by the next class, at which time you will be asked to play it for the class and to discuss your studio experience with your classmates.
Recording sessions will take place at Mix One Recording Studios 1260 Boylston St Suite 204 Boston, MA 02215. Sign up sheets for scheduling your time will be available during the first weeks class hours and sessions may be scheduled thereafter by contacting my assistant Daniel Chatham. You may preview the schedule for opening slots here, however be aware that you must receive confirmation from Daniel as the schedule may not be up to the minute. PLEASE DO NOT CALL MIX ONE STUDIOS DIRECTLY AS THEY HAVE NO INFORMATION ON CLASS PARTICULARS.
Again, sessions will be limited to 20. This is not a lot of time for set up and multiple takes, so please, be 15 minutes early, fully prepared, rehearsed, in tune, and ready to go! The sign up sheets will ask you for a brief description of what you intend to do to help us expedite setting up microphones etc. The actual start time of your session will vary depending on how things are going with the performers ahead of you. However, you can approximate your time slot. For ex: If you've signed up for the 3rd slot in the 12-2 time zone, allowing 20 minutes each for the first 2 performers, you must be ready to start as early as 12:40.
You are also encouraged to attend the sessions as an observer. If the room gets too crowded we may have to rotate in and out. I will try and do my best to educate observers during the sessions.
Note: Mix One has an electric piano that you may opt to use.
