The Audio and Recording Production Certificate makes use of SSU's Walford Recording Studio, a state
of the art Pro Tools HD facility located in Ives Hall. Students will use the recording studio as a lab to
produce music as part of a formalized curriculum. Registered students are allotted personal studio time
to work directly with Walford Studio hardware and software.A faculty coordinator from the Department of
Music will determine the eligibility of prospective students through a screening and
application process. Basic orientation with computers and some fundamental music/audio experience is
expected. Ability to read music notation is helpful. Applicants will be notified of their status by August 1
and are encouraged to attend an information session at the beginning of the academic semester.
