"My training this week with my mentor was an Introduction to the Console, as well as more training in signal flow. Now that I have reached my 5th week with my mentor, things are going a lot smoother. I am now really starting to understand the process of recording, and I’ve gotten to meet other producers from my mentors’ facility. I have now gotten to know my mentor much better and I am able to come in to the studio whenever I have free time…I really value the time I spend at the studio because every time I’m there I learn something new."
