Course Description

We are in the midst of an explosion of musical creativity as a result of technologies that allow you to record music using your laptop or tablet. Whether you are a singer, music producer, audio engineer, or just someone that likes to make good music with vocals, it is essential to have an understanding of vocal technologies for music production.

This music production course provides learners with insight into the voice itself, the recording environment, microphones, equalization, compressors, A-D-A conversion, the listening environment, human perception, natural widening concepts, artificial widening concepts, reverb, delay, and more. Grammy-award winning record producer, audio engineer, recording artist, and educator Prince Charles Alexander offers students a first-hand opportunity to learn the technologies behind vocal production, so that you can enhance your music productions with the most compelling and effective vocal tracks.

This course is very well put together with content relevant to anyone interested in learning more about music production and vocal recording. Prince Charles Alexander is a very experienced producer and performer who gives valuable insight into vocal recording. Occasionally volume levels are inconsistent in the videos and his instruction seem to wander but overall it is very good. Some experience with music production doesn't hurt as he uses technical terms and equipment at time.

The course is something I would pay for. The content is well structured and provides more understanding of music production concepts than all the YouTube videos I have watched in the past two years. Prince Charles is a true educator and producer which is a very rare combination amongst most professional producers

I had to drop due to a combination of illness and other commitments, but I thoroughly enjoyed the first half of this course I was able to complete. Prince Charles is by far the most entertaining instructor I've seen online and lectures were well structured and easy to grasp. I'm certainly enrolling again once the course re-opens.

This is an absolute terrific course, if not the best on Edx. It not just stops with vocal technology but also covers DAW and effects processing as well. Anyone who wishes to make recordings should take this course. I really hope a follow up course will be available in the future or the author publishes a book to learn more tips and tricks. The course is very well balanced, it does not take too much of your time for tests, the videos are very interesting and keeps your eyes glued to the screen while learning a real lot and the instructor has a lot of humor as well ! Bravo !

This course is very informational and helpful to anyone looking to learn more about audio recording. I have recorded small gigs and clips from time to time, but as a novice I had alot to learn. After 4 weeks of this class i have learned so much. You cant find someone experienced in audio recording that will take the time to show you what can learn on here, because its how they make they're money in most cases. To make a long story short, Take this class its Great!

Hello! I am a beginner in this field and I would be very pleased to learn about it. I am a music teacher at secondary school and I would like to manage all kind of recorders and processors, as to deal with my students productions. My mother tongue is not english and I find quite difficult to hear properly at the speech when there is some music at the backgrounds, specially if it's sounds nice Thanks all of you for being there. Hear you, read all of you soon!!!!

What was your prior experience with the subject? Professional level: Keyboardist, Recording Engineer, Producer How does this course compare to others? Best course I have ever taken. OUTSTANDING COURSE! Want to make records... this is the course. What did you like/dislike about the course? I Loved the Course. Very educational and entertaining. The course was very practical entertaining and useful. The materials were presented in a very understandable manner. The instructor, Prince Charles, is a GENUS. A MUST TAKE COURSE... for any producer, musician artist or singer.

I had no prior experience on the subject. I took this class in order to expand my knowledge on the application of a product I am currently working on (Semiconductor Industry). And I was not let down! First I learned what I wanted to learn about, but I got a lot more out of it! The class were well organised in term of progression. The lecturer was very knowledgeable on the topic. The target audience is someone that want to mix his/her own song. And, to my limited knowledge, this was fully covered: from the performer perspective, the recording aspect, the effects, the processing and the mixing. Very practical.

Great course, either for begginers or for people who already have some expirience recording vocals. If you're into free online learning this is a must! I already took all of berklee's free courses and for me this one and music production are definetely the best! It covers a lot of material in only 6 week's i'd advise you to study every topic on your own later because a lot of ground is covered during this 6 weeks!

Admittedly I am somewhat hesitant about on-line courses, as professionally, I crave social human interaction. That said, what impressed me most was how focused and detailed this course became as it progressed. As a professional producer and musician, I am often disappointed by such offerings as they tend to be vague and too generalized to be of any help. Not so here. our professor, Prince Charles Alexander, presented himself as a knowledgeable expert in the field. As a former teacher myself, I enjoyed his candor, and the language he chose; I felt he was thoughtful and encouraging, without condescension or attitude. Though he was "virtual" I found him to be very approachable and open to ideas. All in all, to be successful in this course, one needs to be dedicated to the schedule and the work. I learned that the hard way when family matters precluded me from taking one quiz on time, resulting in my receiving no points for it, and no op...

I learned that the hard way when family matters precluded me from taking one quiz on time, resulting in my receiving no points for it, and no opportunity to make it up. Honestly, that's the real world, so I made certain to focus and complete the rest of my coursework as scheduled and as requested. I'll look forward to future offerings from edX, most especially Berklee College of Music and Prince Charles Alexander.

This has been a wonderful addition to my knowledge base! Thank you so much. The tips, tools, tricks, and general advice on everything from DAW organisation to the mathematics of effects and processing, has been an invaluable lesson and I am excited about working the next few studio projects and incorporating some of the information you have passed on to me. I will sign up for some more of your courses at Berklee and can't wait to learn more. Your course was thoughtful, insightful, clearly presented, well thought out, and chalked full of great information. Continued joy and success in everything you touch! Carolyna Lovely
