Music Schools – Training in a Real Recording Studio

There is a rich history that seeps in Sacramento, California. Together with the Sacramento Area Music Awards (Sammies), there are a lot of facts that many do not realize. In the past, for instance, Sacramento has deep roots in country music though this never developed into the popular “Nashville West.” Among the notable names that came from this fascinating city are Johnny Lee Wills (brother of Bob Wills, the western swing king) and Tiny Moore (part of Merle Haggard’s band). Lynn Anderson comes from Sacramento and Lee Greenwood, most popular for “God Bless the U.S. A.” But it wasn’t long before country music diminished and out of its ashes came rock. Bands with members from Sacramento include: Craig Chaquico (Jefferson Starship), Steve Perry (Journey) and Jeff Watson (Night Ranger) and many more. Therefore, it’s obvious that Sacramento music schools are rooted in such colorful history – as such, they’ll have a great legacy to continue.
Sacramento music schools have a lot to offer when talking about music and audio recording. Whether you wish to work toward a Bachelor’s Degree in Recording Arts or to learn in a real recording situation is really up to the student and what they want for their future. Having a degree allows you to make a living out of teaching or to work in a music recording environment. On the other hand, the advantage to working within a real audio recording environment is that the student learns first hand how to run and make use of all of the equipment from his first day at school.
If the decision is to obtain a degree, then the first order of business is to find one of the Sacramento music schools that offer a program that looks fascinating as well as exciting. Obtaining a degree in Recording Arts can lead to a career as a music or audio producer, recording engineer or in sound effects. Such a program also teaches you about music theory, recording arts, editing and even repair and maintenance.
Some students who look at all of the Sacramento music schools realize that they are better with an alternative school where the training isn’t in a classroom but in a real working recording studio. These schools have a sole purpose; to make the student ready for employment in the music recording industry when they graduate. They believe that there’s no alternative to a real recording studio (not even the classroom) in simulating the stress and pressures of an actual recording job. These non-traditional schools believe that mentor-apprentice programs are remarkably significant in any aspiring professional’s career. These professionals don’t only mentor students, they also act as the link that connects students to industry professionals who can help them get their first employment right after graduation.
