Music Degree and Certificate Programs

Music Technology and Recording Arts Degree

Music Technology and Recording Arts combines studies of the latest technology with traditional theory, history, and performance courses.

Terra State offers students the chance to work in modern facilities with the very latest in audio technology. The main music lab contains 25 Mac workstations each with a 61-key keyboard controller and the latest versions of Reason, Pro Tools, and Reaper. The Terra State Recording Arts Complex houses an acoustically-treated control room equipped with an Avid HD/IO recording system and C|24 control surface. The soundproof control room is surrounded by four acoustically-treated recording rooms that consist of an isolation booth, medium-sized tracking room, small ensemble room, and recital hall. Terra State’s recording studio can accommodate a myriad of projects including voice-over work, solo artists, bands, small ensembles, choirs, and large orchestras. Projects can be mixed in stereo or 5.1 surround sound. Students will also have an opportunity to gain experience in live sound support.

This program supports the Contemporary Music Ensemble in which students perform on a variety of electronic musical instruments including Theremin, a modular synthesizer, electronic percussion, and other varieties of keyboards, samplers, and synthesizers.
