Recording Opportunity, Saturday, 8/28

By admin

Randy’s Recording and MSG are pleased to offer a recording seminar for the performing songwriter.

Each songwriter records a basic demo (guitar/piano and voice), with an explanation off the process as it progresses. At the end, the group evaluates the demos for recordability and Randy chooses one to produce at the studio.

Every songwriter goes home with his or her recording, plus a compilation of the other demos done that day. This is the fourth time Randy and MSG have teamed up to offer this event, and the participants at previous sessions were very pleased with the results.

Cost is $39 for MSG members or $64 for non-members (includes 1-year MSG membership)
Date/time: Saturday, August 28th, 1-4 p.m.

Randy’s Recording and Production is located at:
4770 Gaston Cir., Rt 2
Cottage Grove, WI, 53527
(608) 839-4154
