Pathwork Studios: A Brief Tour
Studio A doubles as recording central and teaching studio. It's not big. It's cozy; the perfect space for two people. With up to date technology and educational features that aren't found in your typical teaching space, Pathwork brings music technology into focus as an educational tool. You can find out all the details of the studio on the Studio Tools pages.
Studio B is the multipurpose room. It is used as the primary space for vocal and instrumental recordings but also holds the print library of music and texts. Most of the time, Studio B serves as a waiting room for sibling students and parents. The couch is comfortable and the library will keep people occupied for a long time.
Music Technology: a Vibrant Contributor to Music Education
As students continually practice and study on the paths toward mastery and artistry, music technology can provide a fresh perspectives on the many disciplines on that journey. As simple as a digital tuner attached to the headstock of a guitar or as complicated as a optic sensor reading the motion of a key on an acoustic piano, music technology can be integral part of music making at every level.
