Audio Engineering Classes

Audio Engineering Classes

Engineering Classes, taught in our Professional Recording Studio.

Do you make your own recordings, but don't know why they don't sound 'professional'?  Do you do live sound, or control the sound for your own band, or at your church and know that it can sound better but don’t know how?  Will you be going to school for audio engineering, and want to get the most out of your tuition by getting your feet wet ahead of time?  Blue Sky's Audio Engineering Classes are taught in our studio by Blue Sky’s owner/award winning engineer/producer Scott Apicelli, and will take you from the basics of acoustics through to advanced mixing and mastering techniques.

Classes will cover such topics as:

  • Sound & Acoustics
  • Mixing Consoles / Signal Flow
  • Microphones & Miking Techniques
  • Equalization (All types & techniques)
  • Compressors & Noise Gates
  • Delays, Reverbs, Flanges & Chorus Effects
  • Mixing / Mastering Techniques
  • Digital Theory & Technology

Any Level!

Both beginners and those with experience are welcome. Even if you currently have some knowledge and experience, there's still plenty to learn, as both the equipment and the techniques are thoroughly discussed.  While all topics are touched on, our audio classes are also tailored to the needs and desires of the students, and critique/analysis of students' work is welcome and encouraged.  Student ages range from 14 to retired.

"Your audio engineering class had something valuable to offer every week & I learned something at each and every session.  Communication was wide open and when questions were asked they were thoroughly answered."

"I'm currently going to school at the Art Institute, and I am not learning anything new here. Scott had already taught me everything that I'm learning here, in the 8 classes I met with him."

"I just wanted to tell you that I really enjoyed the audio classes and I thought they were great.  It was exactly what I needed to take my audio interests to the next level.  It really got me excited to try new things with confidence and makes me want to learn more."
