WELCOME TO "THE CLINIC"!

Intro & HOW IT WORKS...

VARIOUS TRAINING & COACHING SESSIONS FOR MUSICIANS, SINGERS, EMERGING ARTISTS, GROUPS, BEGINNERS IN COMPOSITION/SONGWRITING, ASPIRING RECORDING PRODUCERS & ENGINEERS.

 

Mr. Allen brings a wide range of different skills and expertise gathered from a lifetime working in this industry and will gladly transmit them to support his creative students in their growth and development. 

The years shared between international performances  and recording studio sessions as a writer, musician, composer and arranger with - to name a few, artist Al Green and Producers / Writers Willie Mitchell, David Porter and others - are reflected by numerous awards. Including platinum double disks, six gold records, the prestigious Blues Foundation “Blue Note Award" and more recently, title of "Specialist in Music Production" from Berklee College of Music.


At "The Clinic" Perry Michael's technique is aimed at involving bands, musicians, singing groups and/or soloists in the realities of the recording environment and live performance focusing on improving recording techniques where they are needed.

Consideration can also be given to professionalizing your productions and performance. 

 

Examples:

For Beginners Composers/Songwriters, this course will teach you how to write your own well-written rhythms and melodies.

In the field of Live Studio Recording essential topics are discussed during the lessons in this topic.

In the first instance, the focus is on your basic skills; afterwards the theory; then, the knowledge gained is translated into practice.

This way you quickly get to "feel" the material and gain experience during the process.

Ultimately you will progress to work independently and confidently with PROFESSIONAL studio work.


For HOME STUDIOS INDIE ARTISTS training and coaching includes for example, producing balanced work using current software (Cubase, Protools, etc...) so that it transfers for the best to listeners on ALL media. Any other issue you may have can be addressed.
