Recording Technology

Overview

Trevecca’s Associate of Arts in recording technology is designed to teach students the art of recording and audio production for various types of music, as well as digital cinema. In today’s exciting world of music and entertainment, this degree can be applied toward professional work in a variety of roles, including:

  • Audio production/engineering
  • Digital cinema audio engineering/mixing (including ADR, Foley, sound design and special effects)
  • Live sound work as a front-of-house (FOH) engineer, monitor engineer, backline crew or stage manager

All recording technology classes are housed in the University’s Department of Music. This allows students to develop the skillset and fluency needed to interact with session instrumentalists, enhance their role as a music producer or engineer, or even utilize their instrumental knowledge to contribute to recording sessions, thereby potentially earning extra income. Trevecca’s small class sizes often allow students to experience a one-on-one learning environment with access to state-of-the-art equipment. Students have access to the editing programs in the computer lab, recording studio equipment and live broadcast room equipment as part of their classes. They can also rent the space at a discounted rate for personal projects if desired. 

Students can choose to concentrate on audio production, audio for digital cinema or audio mastering. Faculty includes Grammy-nominated sound engineer Charley Hubbs, who has more than 25 years of professional experience. Trevecca alumni have greatly benefited from the program’s structure and it has helped them to prepare for career success. For example, students who’ve graduated from the program have proceeded to run a recording studio, work as front-of-house (FOH) engineers for successful bands and work as a digital cinema engineer in California. 

After completing the program, students can begin working to complete their bachelor’s degree, if desired. The associate program satisfies the prerequisites needed to seamlessly continue on to earn a Bachelor of Arts in music (commercial).
