Recording and Tech Courses

Our Music Tech department is designed for those interested in learning more about home recording. Laptops are so sophisticated now that expensive studios and engineers are not essential for a good quality recording. However you still need to know your way around the software in order to get the best recording possible.

At CMS as a beginner you will be shown the basics in our mac suite. Following a 10 week course you will be able to competently make a multi track recording and develop sequencing skills within Studio1. Previous experience is not essential but call up to arrange a interview as some experience in music performance may help.

We can also take you further through the world of recording techniques, as an intermediate or advanced candidate you will definitely benefit by taking our more advanced grades. We will explore greater sequencing skills and explain in detail the process of mastering and CD production using both Studio 1 and Logic.

As a student of CMS you will get the work experience of actually recording live musicians in our purpose built recording facility. This is an amazing opportunity for individuals interested in recordings, we are serious about our part time courses so each student gets more than the best experience possible at CMS.

Some of the infomation that will be covered includes:

A basic knowledge of music will be required along with a P.C or Mac. In addition to this you will need Studio 1 and audio interface which can be purchased from the School directly at student rates, saving you cash on your set up cost.

Details of the Free Music Tech course

For existing students studying on one of our music courses, the Music Tech course is free of charge. If you are on Grade 3 or above or on our Diploma course you will be entitled to benefit from this great opportunity.

We noticed that students who were attending both the Tech course and the Performance courses were making more progress in their musicianship development than students who were just on the Performance course. After looking into this further we recognised that the these students were getting better grades in their exams and were generally more content with their experience at C.M.S. As it is our priority that every student is satisfied during their time with us, we decided to offer the course to our students for free.

Some of our student’s comments:

‘My guitar skills rocketed as I was able to record chord progressions and improvise lead work over the top’

‘Brilliant! When I worked it out I was paying £6.25 per hour for lessons’

‘I have had Guitar lessons before but at CMS I also had the opportunity to set up live shows and sound check ready for a live performance and record all my progress’
