DETAILS FOR Singer's Workout: Record That Song!
3rd week of Sept through 1st week Nov: workouts plus recording! This time, we continuelearning about creating sound for the microphone & recording. I've had great help/understanding from doing studio work and also recording for friends/self - plus additional training and research.

Sessions 1: Identify songs - and techniques: Phrasing and Pitch
Sessions 2: Microphones and Sound; create tracks
Session 3: Record a demo in class, shape Tone/Vowels Song 2
Session 4: Your style
Session 5: Arrangements
Session 6: Options for emotional affect
Session 7: Pre-Record/record
Session 8: Record/perform

(I'm advocating that we do a live taping at Kulaks after - just have to pitch in for musicians. They do all the audio/video recording...)
