The Recording Industry Management program at Volunteer State Community College gives students a solid background in audio recording techniques. Students learn fundamentals of audio, acoustics, and recording. They can take that theory into studio courses where they record bands and other musical groups in our on-campus Recording Studio. Advanced students have the opportunity to participate in internships with studios such as Blackbird Studio, Starstruck Studios, and Soundstage Studios

The Recording Industry Management program prepares students to be competitive candidates for application to the recording program at Middle Tennessee State University. The program has also successfully placed students in the recording program at Belmont University.
