In this weekend course, Alastair will guide you through how to make professional sounding demo recordings and promotional videos, as well as discussing how to use social media to help raise your profile. The course is aimed at classical musicians (though those working in other genres are also welcome to attend), and no prior experience of recording or music technology is necessary. The course will start right from the beginning, but will also go on to cover more advanced techniques. In between sessions students will be encouraged to practice the skills that they have learnt so that by the end of the course they could have produced a demo recording and video and shared this on social media.

A significant amount of the course will be focussed on Logic Pro X, and video editing will be done in Final Cut Pro X (or iMovie for those without Final Cut). This course is therefore only suitable for those people using Apple computers.

Requirements for the course:

Stable internet connection

Zoom video conferencing software

Logic Pro X (for audio recording/editing/mixing)

Desirable:

Final Cut Pro X (for video editing)

iMovie (if you do not have Final Cut Pro X)

Please note: a large amount of the course will be focussed on audio recording and editing, for which Logic Pro X is essential. There will also be sessions on video editing; these will primarily be in Final Cut Pro X, but if necessary we can split the group and run parallel sessions in both Final Cut Pro X and iMovie. (iMovie is free to download).
