As part of my requirements for professional development as a public school teacher in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, I am completing an individual learning project. I am learning and implementing technical information on music production in an effort to better teach my high school Digital Music Composition students. I chose for one of my projects to be a multi-track recording of myself singing all four parts to one of my father's barbershop quartet arrangements.
My dad, Jim West, has been a member of the Barbershop Harmony Society for over 50 years as a singer, arranger, instructor, arrangement judge, and clinician. He recently suffered a traumatic brain injury and is currently recovering at a rehab facility. I chose one of his arrangements to practice my music production skills on and to give him something to listen to in his room as he continues to make excellent progress to a full recovery.
This track was recorded using a Blue Snowball microphone and Mixcraft 6. Editing was done with Melodyne Studio and Mixcraft 6, and mixing was done on Mixcraft. It is not mastered.
Listen to the track HERE
If you have comments or suggestions on ways that I can improve the quality of my work on audio production, please let me know.
