Interested in taking your audio skills to the next level? Take the Fastback Audio Course!

Posted on November 13th, by Mitch in Blog. Comments Off on Interested in taking your audio skills to the next level? Take the Fastback Audio Course!

Since 2006 we have been teaching audio courses here at Fastback Studios. One of our goals has always been to “pass the baton” to the next generation of audio engineers. Designed by Producer / Engineer Jason Lackie and taught by working professionals, this course will benefit anyone wanting to hone their audio skills. 

  • Learn in a working recording studio  
  • Apply what you are learning in your textbooks
  • Personalised, hands on learning
  • Assist with real recording sessions
  • Learn new technology, while using classic analog gear

Below is an outline of what we teach in this course. Everyone learns a little differently and at a different pace, so we can adjust the course to fit your individual needs. If you are currently enrolled in an audio program somewhere else ask about a special discount! We have had many students combine this course with a college program to get the best of both worlds.
