Traditions in mastering teaching

Mastering is a difficult subject to teach in a traditional classroom or lesson-based way. This is why historically the only way to learn mastering properly has been to apprentice at an established mastering house, under an experienced engineer. Yet few producers have the hours to devote to a full-time apprenticeship and even fewer mastering studios have the resources to take on apprentices in-house. Our private tuition continues this apprenticeship tradition but brings it into the modern, online age.

Our approach

The tutoring gives you feedback on your own work and is delivered via:

  • Personal Skype tutorial sessions
  • Detailed email breakdowns
  • Full audio example files transferred via WeTransfer.

Lessons are entirely flexible in what you take on and you decide the pace. It can be comprised entirely of pre-prescribed lessons from the engineer or just 100% feedback on your own work, it's up to you. A typical hour would be:

  • 30 minutes offline: Engineer examines your work. Emails feedback and audio suggestions.
  • 30 minutes online: Skype consultation giving 1-to-1 tutoring and answering any questions.
