One thing that often goes un-talked about in the world of music production is "bed-side-manner." How do you tell a singer they're flat without it sounding rude? How do you move past creative disagreements? What about managing the clock, or the singer's energy level? Music making is very personal to most people, and it's difficult to describe a creative vision in a way that doesn't lose at least a little in the translation. Add to that the fact that in A Cappella we regularly are working with newcomers to a studio environment, and you get a recipe for more than a few moments of frustration and a session where you didn't get to everything you'd planned. In this class we'll talk about developing your language as a producer/recording engineer. We'll talk about ways to navigate the most common pitfalls that lead to studio drudgery, and how to avoid falling into them. Finally students will leave with actionable steps for practicing the way they communicate creatively
