    The TRW Full Time Music Technology & Sound
                Engineering Course
              (TRW Music Tech SE.)
This course is designed to prepare students to be able to work in the recording industry. Like our part time
courses the emphasis is on practical work. The course lasts 9 months including holidays and covers all
the essential skills required to operate a professional studio including plenty of practical time amounting to
16 or more hours (up to 40 if you want) per week. There is a maximum of 5 people per course. See page
4 for fees.

At the end of the course students will be assessed for the TRW Music Technology & Sound
Engineering Diploma. This will be based not only on the quality of the work presented but also on the
attitude of the students.
The recording industry does not fit into the mould of other industries. The hours are erratic and can be
very long, the general environment tends to be unorthodox and stress levels can get high. The ability to
work in a team is essential. Motivation, drive, enthusiasm, flexibility and reliability are paramount.




                                     Course Structure (3 parts)
Part 1 (8 weeks):

•   The Foundation course on Tuesdays 14:00 to 17:00.
•   Practical periods: Wednesdays 11:00 to 17:00 +
•   Thursdays or Fridays. 11:00 to 17:00

During part 1 some of the practical sessions consist of assisting in actual recording sessions with a tutor to
gain a better understanding and experience of the requirements of a studio engineer.

As this is also a working recording studio the times and days of the practical sessions may occasionally
change at short notice just as they would do in any other professional recording studio therefore a certain
amount of flexibility is necessary from the students.

The Foundation Course (Tuesday afternoons)
•   A comprehensive and concise grounding course covering all aspects of recording.
•   Seminars are given on all necessary theory and all relevant information packs are provided.
    Additionally each person records his or her mix for each session onto a cassette provided by the
    workshop.
•   Students are asked to bring records/CDs/MP3s of pre-recorded music to be analysed.
•   Textbooks are available at a reduced price.

SOME OF THE AREAS COVERED BY THE FIRST COURSE:
Microphone techniques.       Patching.                             M.I.D.I.

Thursdays:    10:30 to 14:00 or 14:00 to 17:30.
Fridays:      10:30 to 14:00 or 14:00 to 17:30.




                          MODULES in part 2 of the Standard course

SAMPLING:
Students bring in material on various formats to sample as well as keyboard or acoustic sounds from the
studio. All the aspects of sampling, editing and programming the Akai sampler are then covered as well as
using software samplers. Towards the end basic Cubase routines are used to sequence the samples to
produce a complete piece of music.

MULTI-TRACK RECORDING & MICROPHONE TECHNIQUES:
Initially a sequenced piece is used to learn how to use all the aspects of the multitrack recorder and mixer
for acoustic recording such as Lining Up, Levels, Routing, Bouncing Down, Dropping in and out. Then
acoustic and electric guitars, Drums, Vocals etc...are added to cover Microphone placement, Advanced
Effects and EQ use.

CUBASE SX:
A maximum of only 2 people per workstation consisting of a computer with a keyboard and a multitimbral
sound module means plenty of hands-on practice. The course covers: Drum, Key, List, Logical editing,
Arranging with Global functions, Cut & Pasting, Group track, Using Controllers, MIDI processor, IPS, MIDI
mixing, the audio mixer, automation, using plug-ins, editing, channel assignment etc

SYNTHESISER PROGRAMMING:
Covers all aspects of Analog Synthesiser programming as well as Digital synthesis such as VCO, VCF,
VCA, LFO etc... There are up to 6 synthesisers available for participants to work on. Each person will have
use of a different machine at each session so that experience is gained on as many different types as
possible. Students will be able to record their sounds on to tape or sample disks for their own use or bring
their own synths.

ADVANCED PRODUCTION:
No matter what kind of music you work with the final mix is very often the biggest stumbling block. In this
course we work with different styles of music and cover the details of integrating and balancing the sounds
using all the facilities of the studio including programming effects, special use of processors, extensive
EQing, depth and breadth perception, using MIDI for mixing and all the more generally creative aspects of
mixing.

DIGIDESIGN PROTOOLS:
Covers all aspects of working with the industry standard hard disk multitrack recorder and editor: recording
audio, editing, automated mixing, track assignment, plug ins etc...

LOGIC PRO:
Logic Audio is the sequencing program used by professionals which is becoming increasingly popular.
This course covers all the aspects of using Logic: the Environment, Arrange page, Event list editor, Matrix
editor, Hyper editor, audio recording, audio mixing, audio editing etc..

                                                    -3-
                                           Part 3 (8 weeks):


Final period to finish your projects. No more classes but access to the main studio as well as the individual
workstations as well as necessary individual tuition.
Final interview and assessment. Career advice. UK residents who successfully achieve the diploma will
then be found placements in studios for work experience.

      Since 1989 this working 48 track professional recording studio has assisted over
      2000 musicians, prospective studio engineers, enthusiasts, many DJ's, artists,
      producers as well as novices to develop their creative recording and production skills,
      experience and contacts. The Workshop has been the only school used by the A&R
                                                                          - 11 -
personnel from Warner Music, BMG, Island, Nude, Jive, Mother, Polygram,
Parlophone, Independiente, EMI & Decca records etc...
The courses are designed for beginners and the more advanced alike. Having no
more than 5 in a class they are ideal for gaining practical experience and guidance at
using modern professional recording equipment and production techniques- for home
or professional use and those thinking of setting up or building up their own studio.
Students have had placements in studios such as Metropolis, Mayfair, Sphere
Studios & the BBC.
This is also an excellent forum for meeting other musicians and enthusiasts. As a
result of the course students often get together and start their own musical projects
which they record at The Workshop. Some students even start writing their own
music for the first time despite their apparent lack of musical knowledge.


OBJECTIVES:
To provide a guided practical experience of recording techniques in a creative and
supportive way so that participants can get the most out of recording and working
together with as much enjoyment and fulfilment as possible.


COURSE STRUCTURE:
8 X 3 hour or 2.5 hour weekly weekday evening or afternoon workshop sessions or
4 X 6.5 hour/day alternate weekend double sessions.
Classes are limited to a maximum of 5 participants.

                                  ***************************
•   A comprehensive and concise foundation course on sound recording music
    technology.
•   Structured so that by the end students have completed an original recording
    project. This is a group composition irrespective of musical knowledge and with
    pleasantly surprising results.
•   The workshops are informal and involve interacting with others and the tutor as
    well as practising on the equipment available. Seminars are given on all
    necessary theory and all relevant information packs are provided for students to
    keep. Additionally each person records their mix for each session onto a cassette
    provided by the workshop.
•   Students are asked to bring tapes/records/CDs of pre-recorded music for the class
    to analyse.
•   At the end of the course participants are able to analyse productions on most
    recordings, they are familiar with studio equipment and have acquired skills and
    techniques in their use for recording and production.
•   Text books are available at a reduced price.

SOME OF THE AREAS COVERED BY THE FIRST COURSE:
Microphone techniques.         Patching.                          M.I.D.I.

There are 8 rotating advanced courses which can be taken with or after the first course.
These follow on from where the first course finished and consist of 8 x 2 1/2 hour afternoon or
evening sessions once a week except for the Analog Synthesizer & Pro Tools courses (see
below).

COURSE A: SAMPLING: £300 (on its own), £270 (if paid for with another course)
Students bring in material on various formats to sample as well as various keyboard or
acoustic sounds from the studio. All the aspects of sampling, editing and programming the
Akai sampler and software samplers are then covered. Towards the end basic Cubase
routines are taught so as to sequence the samples to produce a complete piece of music.

COURSE B: MULTI-TRACK RECORDING & MICROPHONE TECHNIQUES: £300 (on its
own), £270 (if paid for with another course).
Initially a sequenced piece is used to learn how to use all the aspects of the multitrack
recorder and mixer for acoustic recording such as Lining Up, Levels, Routing, Bouncing
Down, Dropping in and out. Then acoustic and electric guitars, Drums, Vocals etc... are
added to cover Microphone placement, Advanced Effects and EQ use.

COURSE C : CUBASE: 8 x sessions. £300 (on its own), £270 (with another course).
A maximum of only 2 people per workstation consisting of a computer with a keyboard and a
multitimbral sound module means plenty of hands-on practice.
Aspects covered include: Drum, Key, List, Logical editing, Arranging with Global functions,
Cut & Pasting, Group track, Using Controllers, MIDI processor, IPS, MIDI mixing, automation,
audio mixing, processing, plug-ins, VST instruments, audio recording & editing, channel
assignment, mastering etc... (Familiarity with MIDI, EQ & effects necessary or do the 1st
course first).

COURSE D: SYNTHESISER PROGRAMMING. £300 (on its own), £270 (with another
course). A 4 session hands-on course covering all aspects of Analog Synthesiser
programming as well as Digital synthesis such as VCO, VCF, VCA, LFO etc... There are up to
8 synthesisers available for participants to work on. Each person will have use of a different
machine at each session so that experience is gained on as many different types as possible.
Students will be able to record their sounds on to tape or sample disks for their own use or
bring their own synths.

COURSE E: ADVANCED PRODUCTION: £300 (on its own), £270 (with another course).
No matter what kind of music you work with the final mix is very often the biggest stumbling
block. In this course we work with different styles of music and cover the details of integrating
and balancing the sounds using all the facilities of the studio including programming effects,
special use of processors, extensive EQing, depth and breadth perception, using MIDI for
mixing and all the more generally creative aspects of mixing.

COURSE F: DIGIDESIGN PROTOOLS:
£300 (on its own). £270 (with another course). 6 x sessions. 2 Max/workstation. Covers all
aspects of working with the industry standard hard disk multitrack recorder and editor:
recording audio, editing, automated mixing, track assignment, plug ins etc...

COURSE G: LOGIC AUDIO: £300 (on its own). £270 (with another course).
Logic Pro is the sequencing program used by professionals which is becoming increasingly
popular. This course covers all the aspects of using Logic: the Environment, Arrange page,
Event list editor, Matrix editor, Hyper editor etc...

COURSE H: REASON: £300 (on its own). £270 (with another course).
Every aspect of the application & set up is covered for PC & Macs.
