I want to be a recording engineer, but I am struggling with finding a 4 year school that is affordable and offers a decent program.
I REALLY wanna be a music producer and I don't see myself settling for anything else other than a recording engineer so tell me:
How hard was it for you to find a job?
I won't ask what your salary is, but are you at least able to pay the bills?
Are you happy with your decision?
Were your parents (emotionally **AND** financially) supportive?
I want to be a sound engineer and work my way up to a recording engineer or a producer but I don't know what type of education I need at 15 years old as I go through high school. What education do I need in general. I've read electrical engineering comes in handy, but I'm not sure.
I graduated with a bachelor's degree 5 years ago and haven't worked in the field yet. I've been working as a music teacher and in my own recording studio. All the electrical engineering job positions ask for 2-5 years experience in specific areas and with specialized skills.
I've searched Monster and some of the other popular web sites for listings but so far I haven't had any luck.
Thanks for your help,
Music is my passion, but rockstar is a long shot, what good paying jobs could i look into. I like working behind the music too, so recording engineer, producer etc would be ok too, sorry, but im not too informed on this stuff just gr10 lol
What field of study should i enter in college if i wanted to be come a recording engineer? or a sound guy for live shows and concerts?
I work at an audio house and we had a Saturday recording session scheduled with one of our bigger talents. The recording engineer had a family emergency and ended up at the hospital with his baby and had his cell phone turned off. When the operations manager called him to see where he was he kept getting voicemail. The engineer was a no show for the session and the talent's agent charged the company a $5000 cancellation fee. Now the owner of the company is making the operations manager and the engineer pay $2500 and $1250 respectively. Is this legal? They both are paying for fear of losing their jobs.
I'm kind of thinking about being a recording engineer, i think it's a job i'd really love to do. but what does it take, really? i'm good with computers, but i've never had any experience with mixing or recording and i can't see when i ever will. i really really love music, but not a really wide variety, would that be a problem? could i still make it as a recording engineer with a degree from college or university but not having any experience before then?
She is equally interested in both the recording engineering program and the Music Video, Film and Television program and will probally take both eventually. Which should she take first? Which one has more jobs that pay more money? She is only interested in going to the musicians institute in hollywood california.
I hold a graduate engineering degree, and for 3 years after graduation, I worked in a family business that really had nothing to do with my major, but I played a big role in the company and gained a lot of business experience from it. Now I want to get back into my trade, and am looking for startup engineering jobs. How harmful is my experience given that I haven't been practicing my trade since graduation? Will employers prefer someone who recently graduated over me, even though my academic record might be more impressive?
I have decide i want to be a recording engineer although i have looked at the courses on the website of the college i want to go to and they name of the courses dont make much sense.
Does anyone know which course i would have to take, i dont know much about electrical things so would i be taught about that sort of thing?
Im planning on going to community college for sound engineer, then after look for a job as an recording engineer, just want to know can i look for a job at a recording studio?
Whats the average starting salary of an audio engineer? is it close to that of an electrical engineer? and would it be a good choice to persue audio engineering based on the fact that i love playing the drums and listening to music? Is California a good state to persue this career? What are the top audio engineering colleges? Is it easy to find an audio engineering job?
So basically this is a field I am interested in, but I'm not really clear on the difference between these two positions - I want to know which person it is that actually oversees the recording of the music, putting effects on it and whatnot to make it sound nice. So yeah a simple explanation would be wonderful thank you!
I am currently looking into studying a degree in engineering. My understanding is that they are tough to complete but the rewards (employability/starting salary) are positive. I will study and hopefully work in the UK.
I will be studying through the OU (so don't need any qualifying points, although I have a diploma) and have read their information online. However, I would like to hear from current students, graduates or engineers for their opinion.
In your opinion, what skills and abilities are needed to study an engineering degree? What career path (type of engineering degree) would be most interesting? What are possible starting careers/salaries on completion of a degree? What would be my typical day, duties/responsibilities? What areas/aspects/modules of an engineering degree are tough? What aspects of an engineering job are difficult?
For the record, I am aware this is a very general question and that it will throw out a lot of possible answers. All answers will be very much appreciated.
I was thinking a Recording Engineer, but the pay isnt as great as it could. I love music and it has to be my career without a doubt, any really good jobs ?
Ive been playing guitar now for 11 years it is definetly a passion for me.
I cant read music but i would definetly learn if i could get a job in the navy doing it?
I have 18 collage credits, 15 of which are music related including business of music, piano,recording engineer, and history of rock music.
Does someone out there know my situation and can lend some advice for me? thanks.
I know you learn everything with recording a session but I want to know from a graduate or something if you learn the full thing. Mixing & Mastering a song you recorded in a studio.
I'm looking into audio engineering careers and i'm trying to decide.
Beautiful girls always seem to like obese, stupid, guys that work at the cash register and play video games and ignore the smart, strong guys with engineering jobs.
