Minor in Music Production
When is a classroom not a classroom? When it’s a world-class sound studio. With our comprehensive Music Production minor, students learn music production by actually producing music.
The program offers access to the latest digital technology and a hands-on production curriculum. Students log time in the studio, run cable at concert halls, and operate state-of-the-art mixing consoles in the field. They learn about the science of sound. They even get the opportunity to work with meticulously maintained vintage analog recording equipment. If you love making music and want to gain the technical skills to take your recordings to the next level, this minor is for you.
Students learn to explore the artistic and technical sides of music production within the recording studio facilities at the University of Oregon. Directed by Lance Miller along with assistant Jasper Walton, the UO SOMD recording facilities provide superb quality for recording of recitals, faculty artists, student recordings, and special projects.
