Our August masterclass was a great success. Joel Quatermain commenced the first half discussing his influences and his path with Eskimo Joe and his evolution into production.

Earning his stripes by producing his own band and spoke about the role of a producer from recording techniques and songwriting, right through to mentoring the artist performance.

Joel talked about the work ethic that budding producers need to apply to their craft and how practical experience is key to students development.

making pre-production count

Joel showed students the value of pre-production and its role in creating and crafting songs before recording them in a studio.

He gave them an insight on how they could improve the recording and production process by demonstrating the evolution of song development.
He discussed how songs in pre-production can start as Country Pop and end up as a Dance song, all dependent on the process of pre-production.

The masterclass concluded with Joel showing us the different ways that you can approach pre-production with practical examples.
His background in Aria award winning band Eskimo Joe showed the benefit of understanding function when it comes to artist and producer.

Joel dissecting pre-production and his personal feedback that was given to every student he spoke to was inspiring to the next generation of Abbey Road Institute producers.
