WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Aspiring music producers hoping to take the next big step toward a career may get a leg up from two Westchester entrepreneurs when Armonk's Standing Ovation Studios launches Standing Ovation Music Technology Institute at Dobbs Ferry's Riverworks Recording Studio in July.

Standing Ovation Studios and Riverworks Recording Studio of Dobbs Ferry are collaborating to provide a unique new opportunity in Westchester County, with an introductory five-week summer program on July 7.

“Through our performing arts training programs and our theatrical show productions, we realized there was nothing like this locally and found a way to make it happen,” Standing Ovation Studios Director John Fanelli said. "Standing Ovation MTI is geared towards artists, musicians, DJs, performers, songwriters, music producers considering a career in music, sound or production as well as the amateur musician seeking to make a professional sounding record."

Standing Ovation MTI provides specialized training in the making and recording of music. Participants will get authentic hands-on experience at Riverworks, which was designed by industry leader John Storyk , designer of the famous Electric Lady Studios in New York City used by Jimi Hendrix, Coldplay and Kanye West.

The introductory course, which runs July 7 to Aug. 8, and is being taught by Matt Noble, producer, songwriter and engineer with Rihanna, Rod Stewart and Michael Jackson among his credits.

Students will work with both electronic and live content in both digital and analog technology and will learn to create, engineer, mix and produce professional sound for the music industry, video and film, television and video games.

The five-week program tuition is $1,500. For more information and to register, visit www.StandingOvationMTI.com.
