Z Artist Master Class: Recording Yourself at Home

Recording Yourself at Home: From starting your own podcast to recording your own music, learn the art of recording and editing professional audio from home with this new workshop from Theatre Sound Designer and Mixing/Mastering Engineer, Steven Allegretto.

About the Artist: Steven Allegretto

Steven Allegretto wears many hats when it comes to dealing with sound and audio production. He began his career producing music at home, which led to him being formally trained in the art of recording at Full Sail University. After graduating school, Steven became a Recording, Mixing, and Mastering Engineer at a local recording studio. He was then introduced to the world of the performing arts where he developed several skills including micing a wide array of instruments, creating sound effects, and mixing sound for live concerts and events. This led to Steven eventually becoming a Theatre Sound Designer for large-scale musicals and stage plays. Throughout all of this, he has had a passion for teaching, and sharing his knowledge with all who will receive it. Having developed and taught courses with the Governor’s School for the Arts and the College of William & Mary, Steven’s plan is to make his classes more accessible to the world by doing workshops, and developing an online curriculum focusing on theatre sound.

Steven greatly appreciates you for being in attendance at the Recording at Home workshop, and he hopes it will benefit you in your quest of achieving your own sound. Steven would also like to especially thank Zeiders American Dream Theater for giving him the platform and opportunity to be here with you all.
