What I Learned From My Mentor (Student Chris Bell)


What I bring to the table, I think, is not just professionalism, but the knowledge of audio and how it’s captured. Well, one, you can always learn and always get better. But I do a ton of research online and I read a lot of books. Just because I went through the program and graduated doesn’t mean I don’t feel I shouldn’t continue to learn.

I think, as with anything, practice makes you better. Even if I don’t have any projects to work on, I still do test pieces of audio in my home studio, just put a few mics up and record an acoustic for a little while. I try different mic placements. I think getting as many tools and techniques, under my belt as possible, is one of the things that I bring to the table, because it adds versatility. If an artist has a particular idea on what they want to sound like, there’s a good chance that somewhere along the line in my career I’ve done that and I know how to approach it.

Instilling customer confidence is another thing that I bring to the table. I don’t ever want to say to a client, “Geez, I don’t know how to do that. I’m not sure. Let me go Google that real quick.” Also, I think how I setup my sessions is another thing that I bring to the table. If a client comes in and sees that the gear is set up all nice, it’s clean, it’s organized, everything is setup proper, they’re going to be like, “Oh.” They’re going to think that this guy knows what he’s doing. If everything is a mess, in disarray, gear is broken, it’s not working properly, cables are tangled on the floor, you’re going to have an impression of not being very professional. They’re going to lose confidence in you very quickly. So, I think the ability to gain the confidence of my clients right away, my knowledge of recording that I learned on my own and within The Recording Connection are probably two of the greatest things that I can offer a client and to anyone that I’m working with.
