Recording Seminar, November 28th

By admin

Randy’s Recording and MSG are pleased to offer a recording seminar for the performing MSG songwriter. If you’ve always wanted to record in a studio or need to update your press packet with a new recording, this is designed for you!

Each songwriter will record a basic demo (guitar/piano and voice) and the steps in the recording process will be explained along the way. Then the group will evaluate the demos for recordability and Randy will choose one to produce at the studio.

Every songwriter will go home with his or her recording, plus a compilation of the other demos done that day. This is the second time Randy’s and MSG have teamed up to offer this event, and the participants at the first session were very enthusiastic about the results.

Cost is $35 for MSG members, with room for 12 people
Starting time is 1:00 p.m. on Nov. 28th
Randy’s Recording and Production is located at:
4770 Gaston Cir., Rt 2
Cottage Grove, WI, 53527
(608) 839-4154
