Music producer John Keane to teach Pro Tools recording workshop for beginners; four-day course offered through UGA’s Music Business Program
Athens, Ga. -- Respected Athens music producer and engineer John Keane will begin teaching a series of four-day workshops at the University of Georgia on the essentials of using Digidesign’s Pro Tools, the music industry standard for digital recording.
The continuing education course will be based on Keane’s popular book, The Musician’s Guide to Pro Tools, which provides a strong foundation in the basics of Pro Tools for home recordists and aspiring audio engineers and producers.
“In this workshop, John teaches valuable, real-world techniques for recording and editing audio,” said Keith Perissi, program coordinator for UGA’s Music Business Program. “For those interested in understanding the full potential of Pro Tools, it’s a great introduction to the system and software.”
Keane has worked on numerous gold and multi-platinum albums, and his Athens studios have hosted a variety or recording artists, such as R.E.M., Indigo Girls, Drivin’N’Cryin, and Widespread Panic. He began using Pro Tools in 1991 and has written two editions of The Musician’s Guide to Pro Tools.
Keane began teaching a segment on Pro Tools this past fall to the undergraduate students enrolled in UGA’s Music Business Certificate Program. That collaboration went so well that the idea was expanded to now include the open-enrollment workshops that will be taught in four evening sessions, Perissi said.
The workshop will be offered three times this year at Caldwell Hall, where the Terry College of Business houses the Music Business Program’s lab. The dates are March 17-26, Aug. 18-27 and Nov. 3-12. It also will be offered once in Atlanta at the Terry Executive Education Center from Sept. 23 to Oct. 3.
