My CD Project

My CD Project has been developed for the serious vocalist or instrumentalist to elevate their music to a professional performance and recording level. This class is a life-changing experience.

In this 8-month course students learn how to: choose or compose appropriate repertoire (8- tunes), arrange or collaborate on the arrangements, improvise, rehearse the band, record the band, and are involved in the mixing session.

At completion of the course each musician will have a set of music that is fully arranged, notated (books for each instrument), rehearsed, and professionally recorded, ready to be performed anywhere. This experience will take students to a professional level of insight, preparation, musical judgment and performance. This procedure will become the model for the way that all subsequent sets and recordings will be produced.
