Dave Chisholm, Instructor
Ages 14 - adult

Whether you’ve written one song or one thousand, or are simply interested in the process of recording and mixing a demo using the simple-but-powerful software GarageBand, this course is perfect for you. Experienced tunesmith and Music Lab Director Dave Chisholm will help you write, orchestrate, record, and mix your song(s) and get you that much closer to realizing your dream. “GarageBand is an incredibly powerful and sophisticated tool in the studio, truly capable of almost anything,” Chisholm says. If you want to record on your own computer using your own software, you are welcome to bring that in as well, as Dave is well-versed in Logic Pro and Pro Tools as well. Along the way, you’ll learn about songwriting, pop/rock/hip-hop orchestration, mic placement, recording techniques, and mixing techniques. Class may be extended into subsequent quarters if there is enough interest.
Fee: $10 registration fee; $144* tuition per 9-week session. For students enrolled in individual lessons at Hochstein, tuition is $108. (Fees are as of September 2018.)
