Silver EarJust learning the business of how to set up your home recording studio?

Do you need some assistance learning how to use the software or equipment?

Consider acquiring an education in audio production and audio engineering and find out where people with the proverbial "golden ears" go to school.

We've spent a lot of time on the artistic and promotional development of your business over the last while, so there's no better time to take a look at fine tuning the technical side of your voice over business.

What am I talking about?

Audio production, of course!

Just like how there are training sessions, classes and online courses for voice acting, there are formal schools to learn the art and science of audio production.

One such institution is OIART, the Ontario Institute of Audio Recording Technology, located here in London, ON Canada.

OIART offers a one year intensive program that is renowned as the best in the country for producing professional audio engineering graduates.

At OIART, the staff immerses their students in the art and science of music production and sound recording technologies, nurturing their passion for audio while truly preparing them to meet the demands of the audio production industry. OIART helps students become recording engineers and their grads are among the most employable in this exciting industry.

Another school that you may have heard of is Full Sail's Recording Arts Associate Degree Program based in Orlando, FL.

Full Sail offers an intensive audio education that covers every facet of music and audio production “ from tracking and overdubs to mixing and mastering “ in a college environment unlike any other. Full Sail's professional recording studios allow you to record artists using the same microphones, mixing boards, and digital audio workstations used in studios all over the world.

Those are just two examples of educational institutes where you can become an audio engineer and gain a greater appreciation for audio production.

Another link I'd like to share with you is to the Audio Engineering Society (AES).

Are any of you graduates of these schools or similar audio education institutions?

    My name is Marco Hoffer and I'm Brazilian. I work at Globo TV mastering many programs and famous sopoperas here in Brazil and I'm thinking to improve my knowledge and grow on Globo TV.

    I don't know if the course is too expensive for me, because i don't have a lot of money.

    Do you have a kind of intensive Mastering course that is not too much expensive? I'll try to stay in some place that a friend of mine leave in USA.

    Can you help me?

    Best regards,

    PS:Sorry, i have to improve my English!
