The Music Recording program at County College of Morris (CCM) gives students the knowledge required to seek entry-level employment in the recording industry or continue their studies at a four-year school. In addition to the program’s focus on music recording, it also provides students with the core musical knowledge needed to succeed in music-related careers beyond the recording studio. Students gain hands-on experience with state-of-the-art audio gear and are required to record various projects in the upper level classes.
