Ward Melville High School students are getting hands-on experience in the music production industry through a new course called music technology recording taught by Ed Kunkel. Students use state-of-the-art and industry-standard equipment to learn the art of editing and producing professional recordings.

Students collaborate with the music department to bring lesson groups into the recording studio, a room set up at Ward Melville High School. As their peers play music, the class is involved with the entire recording process – beginning with setting up microphones, to engineering the recording and editing tracks. Throughout the course, students learned how to run cables and the ins and outs of the recording software, Logic Pro.

The course has set students up for success after graduation by introducing a new potential career path. Additionally, the music department hopes to use the skills learned in this course as an instructional tool in the future. Director of Music Anthony Pollera suggested recording all different types of district music groups, so students can listen back and hear themselves perform.
