Grammy Award-winning songwriter/producer Bryan-Michael Cox has teamed up with the School of Audio and Engineering to offer a six month guest lecturing series beginning in January. The Bryan-Michael Cox production workshop series will guide students through a professional producer’s journey from the beginning stages of developing a music track to selecting the right publishing deal and management. “This is a great opportunity to nurture many future music producers and engineers,” says Cox with enthusiasm. Bryan-Michael Cox will be joined by a number of industry colleagues to lead select workshops. To date, Cox has pegged special guests including Grammy-winning producer DJ Toomp and songwriters Kendrick Dean and Kandi Burrus to provide students with a comprehensive prospectus of music production techniques. “By teaming up with SAE with their state of the art facilities and distinctive approach to learning, I am further expanding my passion for music through education, its my way of giving back.” SAE Institute will extend the opportunity throughout its extensive network of over 50 campuses. The hour-long workshops on SAE’s Atlanta Campus will be simulcast via the internet to select SAE campuses. SAE, noted for being a leading institution in the field of audio engineering and creative media sectors, historically prides itself with a “hands-on” curriculum. With over fifty campuses worldwide, SAE has produced scores of dynamic music engineers and related professionals for over 30 years. “It’s inspiring for future music makers to have one on one interactions with the people making the music they listen to every day.” explains Chris Davie, Director of SAE Institute Atlanta. “SAE’s partnership with Bryan-Michael Cox and his colleagues is an enormous opportunity for our students to experience their production processes from start to finish.” The workshops will include a detailed course outline of live studio sessions, songwriting techniques, producer and artist relations, management and music publishing. The lectures are directly aligned with SAE’s Diploma in Audio Engineering and Music Business curriculum.
