Advanced Vocal Production

Course Number
CMAT-602
Description

Students enrolled in this course will learn approaches and methodologies used to achieve professional results in the modern-day paradigm of songwriting sessions and production camps. Through experiential work, students will survey the strategies employed by current hit-making songwriters and vocal producers in engineering lead vocals and arranging harmonies and backing vocals. Pitch-altering software such as Melodyne and Autotune will be mastered for both utility and artistry, while students increase their facility in the studio, working with standard hardware and software in developing vocal chains. Vocal coaching skills and session psychology will be explored and put into practice through multiple sessions.
