Hi friends! We’ve had a great week in the Brooklyn Studio. It’s been jam packed with fun practice, amazing improvised jams, super successful recording sessions and one huge highlight, Grammy winning mix engineer, Jason Goldstein’s Arranging and Mixing Masterclass!!
Jason has been a mixing powerhouse for over 20 years. Mixing some of the greatest albums of all time. His discography is extremely impressive and includes, Michael Jackson, Prince, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Nas, David Bowie, Rihanna, J-Lo, LL Cool J and The Roots, to name just a few.
Check out his bio here:
Jason dropped by our Brooklyn Studio on Thursday and gave our teens a 3 hour masterclass on the fundamentals of arranging and mixing a pop record.
The class was extremely informative and filled with great anecdotes about his experience in working with the best. Jason dove head first into a track created by N4N member Richard titled I.D.E.K – which features some well known musicians (watch this space!). He explained to our members how to arrange and mix with pop sensibilities but also how to use your gut instinct and most importantly your ears. He passed on some of his engineering techniques and spoke with passion about music and production…something we could all relate to,
A massive THANK YOU to Jason for volunteering some of his time to engage with our youth and share his wealth of knowledge. We all look forward to the next masterclass.
