Associates

Institute of Production and Recording

At the Institute of Production and Recording (which I will have graduated with an Associates Degree in Audio Engineering by March of 2011), I have learned about many different aspects of music, from Engineering to Production to Post Production and Sound Design for video.  My main study (or "capstone") is in music production.  So far, I have been on the "Dean's List For Outstanding Academic Achievement" every quarter since I began.  I also have 100% perfect attendance.
