MAMM Recording Studio Camp | Arts & Culture
Musicians don’t have to perform on stage, some work their magic behind the scenes laying down tracks and polishing sound. The Maine Academy of Modern Music (MAMM) gives young music lovers a taste of what it’s like at Recording Studio Camp held September 28th- 30th at The Studio (45 Casco Street).
MAMM Recording Studio Camp teaches the fundamentals of recording (pre-production, mic placement, over-dubbing, mixing, mastering) in a state-of-the-art recording studio with one of Portland's top engineers. The camp is held at The Studio led by engineer Jim Begley, an 11-year resident engineer and live sound engineer of choice for countless bands and venues. Not only will students be hands-on with the same top-notch gear as the pros, they will be working on a recording of a real live band and learning inside tips and tricks of the trade! Past camps have engaged the services of popular bands, such as the internationally acclaimed Paranoid Social Club, featuring members of The Rustic Overtones. Camp Fee: $200.
