Rock ‘N’ Roll Recording Camp
Instructor: Ian Duthie

Have you always wanted to record in a real studio? Or maybe you’ve had some experience but you want more? Learn how songs are transformed from real-time performances into great records as you spend the week recording a rock classic in Sky Studios’ state-of-the-art, on-site studio!

Rock ‘N’ Roll recording camp students will choose a classic rock song, learn how to play the song as a group, and spend the remainder of the camp recording the song together in the studio. As students track, mix and overdub their song, they will learn tried and true recording techniques while also experiencing how the studio world differs from a live performance setting. At the end of the week, the campers will have a final mixed and mastered masterpiece to play for family and friends. They will also have an opportunity to perform the song at Sky Studios Back To School Bash on August 12!
