If you have heard phrases like ‘You need to be in the studio to learn’, ‘You must have a mixing board and record in a sound proofed studio’, ‘In order to learn, you need someone to show you how the studio works’, then you have crossed paths with the Hands on Training Myth.
These are common misconceptions, however, hands on training is when you are alone in your studio, on a deadline. You do not have time for writer’s block, issues in your studio or time to doubt yourself. It’s very simple, either you get radio ready results in your studio or you don’t.
What Hands on Training IS NOT:
–Hands on training IS NOT when you sit in a studio tweaking knobs and playing with faders.
–Hands on training IS NOT when you look over an instructor or tutors shoulder.
–Hands on training IS NOT when you sit in a classroom with a workstation.
It’s quite possible the hands on training myth is blocking you from achieving your dreams.
Anyone can go to a classroom or listen to an instructor but that doesn’t mean you learn anything.
Here’s how to know if you have been duped by the Hands on Training Myth.
–“How come when I get ‘Hands On’ with my equipment I still have questions?”
–“Why am I in the studio for 8-10 hours and my music is still not finished?”
–“Why have I been doing music for years and getting no where?”
–I can only learn if someone teaches me or if I watch a video tutorial.
–I have to much to do to slow down and read. I don’t like reading.
What Hands on Training IS:
–Hands on training is being alone, in your own studio, using the gear you have.
–Hands on training is when you complete a project to the ‘radio ready’ industry standard on a deadline ALONE.
How the Process Works: The hands on training process consists of 3 simple steps:
1) Learn. You first must learn what to do, where to go, what to listen for, etc.
2) Apply. You must take what you have learned and make it yours. The only way to do this is applying it.
3) Ask Questions. Keep asking questions on a specific subject until you have no more.
When you use these 3 steps, the process of hands on training becomes a simple solution that can be utilized anywhere at any time. This requires that you read, study, grow and stretch yourself. You must educate yourself no matter how you learn. This is the only way you can achieve your dreams in every moment of the day.
