Audio Engineering, Computer Music Production and the Music Business
Many students are interested in the behind-the-scenes aspects of music:  how to assemble tracks on a computer, how to set up microphones for a drum set, how to do a multi-track recording session or how to set up a musical score on the computer. Other students want to know more about the business end of music:  how the record industry works, how to promote your band and how to release your own CD. And everyone needs to how to protect themselves and their songs from some of the not-so-honest people in the music industry.
