Gilbert, AZ (September 22, 2017)—The Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences (CRAS) has announced that new students entering the Master Recording Program will receive numerous Blue tools as a part of their Laptop Recording Package.

“CRAS and Blue have a successful history together, from product clinics for our students to Blue’s Internship Program that CRAS students have participated in and, in many cases, have been hired to work at Blue,” explained Kirt Hamm, CRAS administrator. “As both CRAS and Blue believe in a real world education, it was ideal that we strike this accord for our students to receive Blue gear upon starting classes here at CRAS. Our faculty and students are very excited with what is now available to our incoming classes to help them learn on the very same top shelf gear used in today’s leading recording studios.”
