Certificate Program in Audio and Recording Production

The Certificate in Audio and Recording Production is open to the local community and inclined matriculated students interested in music recording and production in a studio setting. The program makes use of SSU’s Walford Recording Studio in Ives Hall Room 32, which is newly renovated and updated with high level, state of the art, 24 channel pro-tools, mac based equipment, and integrated with red-net ability to record from the Green Music Center's Weill and Schroeder Halls. Students will use the recording studio as a lab to produce music as part of a formalized curriculum.

Thomas Limbert, the newly hired Director of the Walford Recording Studio and Assistant Professor of Composition, will determine the eligibility of prospective students through a screening and application process.
