It’s important to learn a combination of theory and application. When students graduate, they should be ready to develop their own sounds, their own musical tastes, and be creative in their own way. I teach them what I know and then they take it to the next level.Benny Faccone
The most impactful classes I’ve taken in the music production major are Studio Recording I and Studio Recording II. These classes both have labs where we get to spend up to three hours in the studio, recording students and faculty using techniques we learn during our class time. It’s a really awesome and fun experience to be able to work in the studios on campus and use all of the professional equipment.
