Learn the ins and outs of radio production in this interactive class!

Radio plays and podcasts have never been more vibrant and popular, and are an excellent way to introduce your work to a wide and diverse audience.  This class is for artists interested in learning how to write and record radio plays and podcasts. Each week, students will learn both the creative side of radio, as well as the necessary audio production skills they need to turn their radio and podcast ideas into fully produced work.  Artists will learn how to use Adobe Audition and will build their "radio portfolio" to help them to pursue radio and podcast production professionally.  Some technical skills will be required for this course.
