About This Class

Go behind-the-scenes with Jay Z’s audio engineer Young Guru as he breaks down how you can capture professional sound quality in a DIY recording setup. In this 45-minute class, you’ll learn how to identify your audio needs, set up your space, avoid common mistakes, and create a great track.

This class is perfect for aspiring audio engineers, producers, musicians, and enthusiasts. Learn what you need — and what you don’t — so you can make the music you want.

As an added bonus towards building the ideal home studio, students who submit their self-recorded tracks have the opportunity to win a microphone and pair of headphones courtesy of Audio Technica and a personal consultation with Young Guru himself! Check out the "Class Project" tab for details.
