Advanced Songwriting & Studio Recording

7 to 12 August 2011


The course "Advanced Songwriting and Studio Recording" is designed for students who wish to develop their skills in songwriting and arranging and those wishing to extend their knowledge and experience of working in a fully-equipped digital recording studio.
This course is geared towards older and more experienced students.
The minimum age is 16 years old.


The aim of this course is to enable students to spend time developing their personal writing skills to enable them to develop an indivual style as a songwriter. The other aspect of the course teaches students the elements of studio recording and production. They will have access to a range of recording media and will follow a workshop programme in various aspects of live and studio techniques. During the week students will be based at the BA Recording Studios and have access to a qualified sound engineer, professional songwriter and Beauville Arts Producer. There will be an informal concert of new material on the final Friday evening (12 August) and all recordings of the music written will be available to students. Please note that the places will be limited and will be allocated on a 'first come first served' basis.
