Music Production and
Audio Mastering
3 Courses (9 credits)
Audio mastering is the final step in the
music production process, and an essential
component in creating a professional-
sounding recording. The best mastering
engineers (such as Bob Clearmountain and
Bob Ludwig) are able to hear a raw tape,
understand what it could sound like, and
then know exactly what techniques they
need to use to make it sound that way. Far
from a being a mysterious art, mastering is
actually series of techniques that students
can practice, learn, and employ themselves
to great effect on their own productions.
Berkleemusic’s Specialist Certificate in
Music Production and Audio Mastering
provides the skills and knowledge you
need to become a better producer as well
as a well-versed mastering professional.

you’ve heard about it – now learn how to
do it yourself. With the Specialist Certificate

to use it to make yourself known in the

Rock Bass Styles

The bass is the heart and soul of an ensemble:
the rhythmic driver that links the percussion,
keyboards and melody instruments;
the decider of key, harmony and chord
movement; and the creator of the “pocket”
that is the source of groove. Whether the
bass line is straight eighths (Van Halen’s
Michael Anthony, Dee Dee Ramone), gritty
rhythmic counterpoint (Larry Graham, Flea,
Bootsy Collins), or a melody instrument in its
own right (Bruce Thomas of The Attractions,
Geddy Lee, Paul McCartney), what the bassist
plays and how he or she plays it can make
or break a band. In Berkleemusic’s Rock
Bass Styles Specialist certificate program,
you will learn the bass styles of the major
blues-based genres of the past half-century,
and become a much more effective and
player and performer in the process.
