Loudon Stearns




Assistant Professor

"When I graduated from Berklee I was part of the initial push to get computers for all the students. I was hired to train faculty and to help maintain computers. I worked with Jerry Smith, who was the technology coordinator for the writing division, and he and I put together a package that every writing division student would get. Then the whole college came on board. When I was a student taking those courses, I had access to the computer only 3-4 hours a week. I took it on myself to buy myself a computer; I spent a lot of money to set myself up. But now everyone has these options. And every semester we're updating our curriculum as a new program comes out."

Learn about the music production process—including recording, editing, and mixing—and the tools available to you to create contemporary music on your computer. With the recent introduction of high-quality-low-cost software and hardware, the tools of music production are now available to the masses. Albums are made in bedrooms as well as studios. On the surface this is liberating. Anyone can make an album for the low cost of a couple pieces of gear and a software package. But, if you dig deeper, you will find that it is not so easy. Producing music requires knowledge, dedication, and creativity.
