For a career in the recording studio, it is therefore crucial to master not only the musical, but also the technical side of music production. But even if you want to work as a freelance engineer or producer, extensive know-how and plenty of practical experience will help you to deliver professional productions and get satisfied customers.
That’s why we have designed our audio engineering courses to contain a very high practical content. You get detailed introductions to all relevant instrument groups and the best techniques for miking and recording these instruments as well as comprehensive insights into the production methods of a wide range of musical styles. An important part of the audio engineering training at HOFA-College are the regular practice mixes that you mix in your studio and submit for analysis. For these, you will receive professional feedback from the experienced audio engineers at the HOFA studios.
