Silver Sound Sound Design Crash Course
Hello! I had such a positive response to my sound design event at Adorama that I decided to offer this class to the general public. Although I have taught Sound Design at Brooklyn College in the past, and this semester students even came to my studio, I have never before seriously considered offering Sound Design classes on my own. I believe in small learning environments that are extremely hands-on. I believe in empowering the people I am teaching to do as much as they can with the resources that are available to them. It is my hope that the folks who take this course leave it with more knowledge, more power, ready to create!

The focus of this class will be specifically sound design, and the class will be taught using the DAW that I use professionally, REAPER.

-Cory Choy, Silver Sound

The cost to enroll in the class is $600. I will be offering 1-2 reduced-cost scholarship slots to those experiencing financial hardship. Please email me if you would like to apply for one of these slots. The reduced-cost price is $300.

Please feel free to share this form with anyone who might be interested in taking this class.
Slots are first come, first serve. Should you decide to enroll I will contact you directly to coordinate via email or phone.
