Hollywood, CA (February 5, 2009)–Apprentice audio engineers at Ocean Way Recording Studios have enrolled at Berkleemusic.com, the online continuing education division of Boston-based Berklee College of Music.
“We are extremely proud to have our team studying online at Berkleemusic,” comments engineer/producer and studio owner Allen Sides. “We have always stressed that the staff learn about recording as an artform and Berklee certainly embodies that concept. As our apprentices move up the ladder, they can easily continue their formal education, because online learning has such a flexible, self-determined schedule.”
New online Music Theory student Michael Giotto remarked, “I feel that a good foundation in music will broaden my horizons and help me to be to a better audio engineer.” Also enrolled in Music Theory are fellow Ocean Way apprentices Joe Corey, a graduate of the L.A. Recording School, Robin Goodchild, a graduate of England’s University of Manchester, and Ryan Reault.
Apprentice engineer Brian Adams is enrolled in Game Audio. “I’ve always been interested in working in videogames,” he says, “and the Berkleemusic course really gets into the game engines and how audio fits into the bigger picture.”
