The Course

Join us for this practical summer school.  Over five days you will experience the complete process of recording, mixing and mastering your music.  Facilitated by professional producer and educator Alex, you will arrange and record a song in one of our state-in-art recording studios through a large format analogue console.

Create your own mix or interpretation of how the song should sound by editing, mixing and mastering in one of our computer music suites.

This summer school is suitable for beginners to recording, although participants will be introduced to some intermediate music production concepts. To get the most from this course, you will need to play an instrument or sing, and engage in collaborative work throughout the week.


Alex Halliday (BA, PGCert PA) is a Music Production lecturer who teaches on the Foundation Degree and BA Music Degree (Production) at Leeds College of Music. His specialist areas are Computer Music Technology and Studio Recording. He is an Apple certified Pro trainer for Logic X and an official AVID Pro-tools Operator.
