“As a current Logic user, it’s good (and a little overwhelming) to realize how much about Logic I’ve forgotten or never knew in the first place, and how much more there is to learn. Thanks for this class. I really feel like I’m getting up to speed. This is huge!”

Mixing & Mastering 301 with Logic Pro X:
This class is the culmination ALL of the subjects learned to date – from music theory to songwriting, production tools and engineering concepts. Each week for 16 weeks, student projects and mixes will be dissected in a workshop setting to determine what works and what doesn’t using a set of specified objective criteria chosen by the student. Once mixed, the song will undergo mastering both at Pyramind “in the box” as well as at a professional facility in SF – the final step on the way to professional delivery.
*Prerequisites exist for this class which include a minimum of: Logic 101 and 201 // Music Theory 101, 110 // Producing and Arranging 110 // Sound Design 101, 201.

Ryan Rey - Logic Pro X 101, 201
Ryan Rey is a composer, guitarist, and teacher from the San Francisco Bay Area. He writes music for chamber ensembles, symphonic band, orchestra, rock groups, videogames, ringtones, and film.
At the age of 5, Ryan’s first instrument was a bright orange and neon green plastic toy guitar and his first recording setup was a Playschool cassette player with microphone combo. Using this toy tape recorder, he captured the sound of his screaming voice and feedback noises. This was his first exploration into composition. Nowadays, classical chamber music, electronic loops, heavy metal, and a mix of other genres influence his music.
