Professional Sound Production

Our Sound Production Courses are perfect for those wanting to pursue a career in sound production for music, film or gaming. For the many of us who simply love creating sound and music, this course will expand your understanding of sound; how we create it, how we record it and how we perceive it

Our course leader is Tom Pearce. Tom is a music industry veteran with over 40 years experience in the technical and business sides of the industry. Over the years Tom has worked with many of the world's top artists, including Elton John, George Harrison, Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck. Now Tom brings that experience to you - whether your interests are in self -release projects, label or publisher productions or simply that you need a little support getting your career off the ground

The courses take place at our Professional Recording Studios in Rettendon Common - just south of Chelmsford
