Asheville, NC (April 3, 2012)—The recent Asheville Studio Summit held by SPARS attracted SRO crowds for the sold-out event.
The first in a new series of regional Studio Summits, the event was held at Echo Mountain Recording and brought out local students and industry pros as well as artists, producers and engineers from the Carolinas, Tennessee, Georgia and surrounding states. There were also several registrations from as far away as New York, Florida and Texas.
In addition to panels and roundtable discussions on such topics as Music Business, Recording and Post, attendees participated in the Ask SPARS Speed Mentoring Program, which divides participants into various groups according to interest. The groups then rotate among panels of industry pros who answer questions and offer career insights and tips. The program allows students and working professionals access to those who have been successful in the industry.
The SPARS Studio Summit program is a new mentoring and education initiative adopted by the 33-year-old recording association to bring together educators, students, working professionals and SPARS members and facilities on a regional basis around the country. As part of the Studio Summit, Ask SPARS is SPARS new mentoring initiative that allows students and working career recording professionals access to successful industry leaders.
