The course has synchronous weekly meetings to present material, to workshop techniques, and to discuss and critique student work.

There is a mandatory laboratory in which students engage in all the aspects of preparing for a recording session: preparing and checking the materials, creating the ProTools Sessions and the click tracks, producing efficient take notes, and assisting the composer during the recording.
