It is becoming more and more difficult to have the opportunity to follow the masters in the field, and I think it is very important, now more than ever, to teach kids all the notions, even the most basic ones, to give them a more solid preparation as musicians and future professionals.” (M. J Robertson)

Some topics that will be covered during the master class:

  • Headphone mix, what to ask the sound engineer for
  • Mix in monitors, what to ask the sound engineer

  • Terminology for communicating properly in the recording studio
