The wide accessibility of advanced recording technology has changed the landscape of music production. Now more than ever, amateur recording artists are able to release albums, experiment with sound and even launch careers in the comfort of their own homes. While most would agree that this change in the music industry landscape has had a positive impact on artists, allowing them to push their dreams forward, some may argue that the introduction of simple recording technology has caused the art of music to suffer.
In partnership with industry professionals, Vatterott College’s Ex’treme Institute by Nelly has developed a program to “make the practical training methods and hands-on experience once acquired only through internships and apprenticeships available to the amateur enthusiast.” Combining the best of both worlds, these classes allow you to turn your raw talent into a profession.
