Opportunities to record and produce music at home have never been greater â€“ or more affordable. Couple that with the ability to distribute music online and you have the ingredients for what is shaping up to be the future of the music industry.
But with so many options available it's easy for the technology to get in the way of creative ability, so spending time trying to figure out how to work the technology rather than getting down to recording your masterpiece is a common problem amongst those wanting to unleash their creativity.
SAE's new Home Studio Certificate aims to change all that. This new entry-level qualification is ideal for the singer/songwriter, hobbyist or beginner wanting to produce their own music, and will leave students fully conversant with the basic equipment and techniques necessary to take control and record music at home.
The Home Studio Certificate will train students in setup and optimisation of any standard home recording system with regards to recording instruments and vocals, editing, adding signal processing and even mixdown into a finished track.
SAE London manager Matthias Postel said: "Here at SAE we've always focused on preparing our students for professional careers, but we also recognise that there are thousands of aspiring producers and musicians out there who need help taking their very first steps â€“ setting up home recording studios that really deliver. And that's exactly what the Home Recording Certificate aims to do. Anyone completing this very hands-on three month course will not only be able to choose the equipment they need for music production success but also to use that equipment to start producing high quality music at home."
In 2007 SAE was awarded Skillset Media Academy status by the Government and is one of only 17 such academies in the country to gain this recognition.
