JOIN THE WAITLIST FOR

HOME RECORDING ACADEMY

The most comprehensive female-focussed training in recording and producing your music from home  

Home Recording Academy is the only framework of it's kind that shows you exactly how to professionally record your music from home while celebrating and centering the female experience of making music and carving out a creative career.

HRA is a right fit if you'rE A WOMAN IN MUSIC WHO:

has a tonne of songs ready to record but no clue how to get them out of your head and into professional sounding recordings you'd be proud to release. 

is tired of relying for favours from (male) music colleagues or friends-of-friends and is ready to take control of your creative process. 

hasn't enjoyed past experiences in recording studios or in music tech courses and is ready to have the skills to make music when, how, where and with whom you want with total autonomy.

is already recording themselves but wants to deepen these skills in a non-judgemental learning space, just with other women. 

would love to feel more confident with music tech, even if you're a total technophobe, and knows a female-centred approach and community is the key to doing so.

Since enrolling in Home Recording Academy, I’ve gained confidence, friendships, independence, knowledge, and a network of support.  It’s taught me everything I need to start recording and I’m clearer than ever about what I want and how to create it.  Thank you so much Isobel!!

“I felt like I needed to go into a professional recording studio to achieve that ‘perfect’ sound. Home Recording Academy has taught me that I can do it all myself - I’ve never felt so fulfilled!”

  • Is this retreat actually live?
    It certainly is! We'll be meeting for two jam-packed days drilling down into the beautiful art of field recording, face-to-face, LIVE on Zoom!
  • I'm totally new to field recording. Is this retreat for me?
    Absolutely! We'll be starting from the ground up so no prior field recording experience is necessary. Plus, there'll be lots of time to ask questions and get support from me, even during the practical exercises.
  • What equipment will I need to take part?
    I've purposely designed this retreat so that even if you've only got access to a smartphone and some earbuds, you'll be able to start your field recording journey. It will also be helpful to have some recording software, and this can even just be something free like Garageband on your phone. You can also download my FREE 5 point equipment checklist to Start Recording With Your Smartphone before the retreat so you're all prepped to hit record when we meet.
  • I'm already field recording - will I learn anything new here?
    If you're already making field recordings you LOVE and you're happy working away on your own, this field recording retreat may not be right for you. On the other hand, if you'd like to deepen your field recording technique and learn to manipulate your recordings in new and interesting ways with a Dr in Sonic Arts and a community of other women, then this retreat is still for you!
  • I'm a total music tech beginner - will I be able to keep up?
    This retreat is paced at a beginner-intermediate level and every effort will be made to accommodate a variety of technical levels, where reasonably possible. However, it's advised that you are at the very least able to open up your recording software and import an audio file. I'll walk you through everything else, step-by-step... by step!
  • What happens if I can't make it live?
    The retreat will be delivered from 10am-7pm BST (UK Time) on September 24-25, 2022. While all the workshops and feedback sessions will be recorded and saved inside your Art of Field Recording hub to watch back later, this retreat has been designed to be experienced live, as you'll benefit from putting everything you learn into action during the retreat with me on hand to support you. Of course, if you can't join live but would still like to join and access the replays later on, that's all good. But the BEST experience will be live :)
  • Will I get hands-on time recording? And will I be supported doing so?
    Yes! A big emphasis of this retreat is not just learning the techniques I'm sharing but actually putting them into action by venturing out into the field, capturing the sounds around you and doing amazing things with them inside your recording software. I'll be on hand to ask in-the-moment questions and trouble shoot tech issues while you're off doing the afternoon practical exercises, so you'll have top-level support honing your field recording craft on this retreat.
  • I can't make these dates - Will this retreat be running again?
    Yes, I'm planning on running another online and an in-person field recording retreat but not till 2023. This is the only chance to join me in 2022 and it's your last chance to get the Founding Member's price of £297.
