ELESVEE

COLLEGE APPRENTICESHIP OVERVIEW

The College Apprenticeship is a unique experience in the recording arts under the daily tutelage of composer/producer Gary Powell and staff. This is a hands-on and also “shadowing” apprenticeship; dynamic in that beyond the scheduled recording sessions of the studio itself, other learning initiatives can be designed and implemented to engage every apprentice within their specific interests and goals.
Think of this as an immersive and individual experience within the recording studio production arts. You will shadow composer/producer Gary Powell in every manner of his successful career; musically, technically, creatively, and learn from his business acumen.


TIME: All weekdays from 10am – 6pm. Apprentices can also schedule personal recording sessions after 6pm on weekdays and anytime on weekends.
 
PLACE: Powell Studio Productions in Austin, TX
 
ACCESS: Apprentices have full access to the studio in off hours.
 
VOCAL TRAINING: Apprentices can participate in all levels of vocal training within ELESVEE – Lone Star Voices.
 
VOCAL PEDAGOGY: Apprentices who are university voice majors, can enrich their bel canto vocal training learning how to teach, coach, and produce other singers across the popular music genres. Individual vocal sessions and group sessions of no more than eight student singers are coached in ELESVEE vocal workshops. (This is truly a unique experience.)
 
MUSIC PRODUCTION: We can offer to teach across all the disciplines within the recording production arts that the apprentice wants to learn; technology, vocal arts, composition, orchestration, songwriting, vocal pedagogy, creativity.
  Apprentices will have access to, and be tutored by, our staff members and other professionals at scheduled times. All these private music production tutelage sessions, relevant music theory tutors, home production, instruments, songwriting, and musicianship sessions are included in the apprenticeship. They will cover intermediate to expert studio recording skills working within the Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) Digital Performer by MOTU. Although not taught, the studio is also equipped with Pro Tools, Cubase,and Ableton Live.

MENTORING: Growth in any professional career is always enhanced when having access to a mentor who shepherds thought processes, business and personal, and one who has a keen eye and ear on the mentee and their choices. Mentors are not meant to be best friends, but are best when they are trusted, truthful, loyal and very present allies. Apprentices will not only be lunching and dining, but will also be included in as many meetings, auditions, assessments, recording sessions, etc., as possible.
 
MUSIC BUSINESS: Apprentices will have access to any of Gary Powell’s relevant music business contracts, old and new; learn client management, negotiation skills with her own clients or upcoming record companies, agents, or managers. Within music business, it is helpful to understand not only technological changes, but also cultural changes.
 
COLLEGE APPRENTICESHIP INCLUDES: All recording Producer, Audio Engineer and Studio Fees, and other College Apprenticeship opportunities including all 3rd party teachers, such as piano instructors, music theory, or music production tutors. Studio Photo shoots and Video Production, if not requiring 3rd party engagement are also included.

ADDENDUM: The ELESVEE staff will inform and submit an estimate to apprentices concerning all 3rd party expenses for musicians or video production before engaging those services.When the schedule or opportunity calls for it, the weekends are included in the monthly fee. The daily rate does not apply for weekends.
 
In maintaining the high production level expected at Powell Studio Productions, apprentices should expect to produce only top professional quality productions. Outside the schedule of the studio itself, the dedication, focus, and skill of the apprentice will determine how many projects can be produced in one month.
 
Communication is key to a successful apprenticeship. With each apprenticeship and with the approval of each apprentice, We will happily bring the parent or sponsor into the production process as we go. Please feel free to call Gary Powell anytime. We want this to be a special experience for our apprentices and the ELESVEE staff.

Singer Apprenticeship

2 Comments

Microphone Icon ELESVEE vocal training bares little resemblance to traditional voice lessons. In that, the typical weekly voice lesson itself gives up too much yardage for young singers to improve steadily and predictably. Two words, CONTINUITY and DISCIPLINE, come to mind as the new educational focal point. Here’s why: Education must engage and stretch students beyond their young experiences. This is an adventure for the intellect and senses within a safe environment. The hard-knocks of all art industries, inclusive of music, will seem less hard the more students are prepared through a disciplined mentor-ship.

SINGER APPRENTICESHIP OVERVIEW

The Singer Apprenticeship is a unique experience in the recording arts under the daily tutelage of composer/producer Gary Powell. This apprenticeship addresses all aspects of the vocal arts, both in performance and recording. Other music production techniques which enhance vocal and studio skills are also taught; hands on! Learning initiatives can be designed and implemented to engage every singer apprentice within their specific vocal interests and goals. A singer’s personal goals are determined and set in place early in the process.

Think of this as an immersive and very personal experience. Knowledge within the recording studio production arts is seldom addressed in traditional voice lessons. So, we suggest you not even consider this apprenticeship as “voice lessons.” The depth and breadth of this training, integrated into the unique talents and aspirations of individual singers is fabulously complex, yet masterfully and creatively presented.


SESSIONS: Nine hours of training per week: Three hours per day, three days per week; Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday

SESSION TIMES: Clients schedules will be accommodated as much as possible.

APPRENTICES: No more than Four singers per session. Great care will be taken in matching singers’ talent.

PLACE: Powell Studio Productions in Austin, TX

VOCAL PEDAGOGY: Apprentices, when appropriate, can also be taught how to teach, coach, and produce other singers who are students within ELESVEE.

MUSIC PRODUCTION: Singer Apprentices will also work both sides of the “glass,” learning to edit their own performances and beginning training in all aspects of the vocal recording arts, as well.


MENTORING: Growth in any professional career is always enhanced when having access to a mentor who shepherds thought processes, business and personal, and one who has a keen eye and ear on the mentee and their choices. Mentors are not meant to be best friends, but are most effective when they are trusted, truthful, loyal and very present allies.

SINGER APPRENTICESHIP INCLUDES: All recording Producers, Audio Engineer and Studio Fees. Professionally mixed audio recordings from training sessions are also included. Other Singer Apprenticeship opportunities include any video which was shot and produced during training sessions.


ADDENDUM: Full song production and/or video production for individual apprentices is not included in the Singers Apprenticeship fee. Production projects, both audio and video, are beyond the reach of the Singers Apprenticeship. ELESVEE offers national quality recordings and video production outside of the apprenticeship itself. If requested, ELESVEE staff will inform and submit an estimate to apprentices concerning studio, producer fees and all 3rd party costs for musicians and/or film crews before engaging those services.

Communication is key to a successful apprenticeship. Please feel free to call Gary Powell anytime. We want this to be a special experience for our apprentices and the ELESVEE staff.

Rachael Price (Lake Street Dive)

No Comments

Singer for “Lake Street Dive” Rachael Price, is fearless in using all of her instrument. What does this mean? It means that she never misses an oportunity to interpret the lyric and melody as one thing, freely introducing changes in her tone; both size and frequency,then, using volume as an important musical element, and nursing vowel sounds with expressive and adventurous dipthongs. It’s obvious she wholey trusts her ear. Rachael Price has set the new bar for the vocal popular arts.

Joe & Eddie

No Comments

As a young boy, Joe and Eddie were the first singers I even noticed. It was in the early 1960’s when they performed on the Ed Sullivan Show. The sounds they made invited my ears and life into a world of self-expression, ensemble, and a musical freedom which continues to this day.
