The Audio Production Course takes place in a working studio (Studio 501) and is designed to give the student hands-on experience in producing and engineering music. It is a highly specialized program focused on all technical aspects of sound production. This is a 12 week course that covers 3 main focus areas: Pro Tools 101, Audio Production & Spiritual Development. The first area of focus is Pro Tools, which is one of the best sounding, most widely-used audio production software in the industry; it enables you to record, compose, edit, and mix with great speed and ease. The second area of focus is Audio Production; in this part of the school students can expect to learn all about hardware equipment used in a recording school as well as in live shows. They will learn terminology which is vital for communication when working with producers, musicians, and other engineers. By the end of the school students will have a solid foundation for working in a recording studio. The third focus is spiritual development; throughout the course students will grow in a number of ways on a spiritual level with teachings such as: Walking in your Calling, Conflict Resolution, Personality Testing, Difficult Questions of Christianity, and Missions in the Entertainment Industry.
