Three courses organised by the Labella School


(covering the basics of studio work) - 5 lessons; 3 hours each lesson 

This course provides the basic knowledge for sound engineering, with practice in recording and mixing. We will analyse the types of cables and signals, the equipment used in the studio (sound cards, microphones, preamplifiers, compressors, digital and analogue mixers, summing mixers) and the ways in which production work is carried out in a professional context, applicable also in a home recording situation.

The objective is to provide an idea of how the sound engineer deals with production work in everyday reality.


4 lessons; 3 hours each lesson

In the Pro Tools course, we start with an overview of the windows and the audio file management system, which is the basis of Pro Tools, moving on to analysing and using the editing tools, the key part of the software: the quantisation systems (Beat-Detective and Elastic Audio), the structure of the mixer (routing) and the use of channels, aux send and plugins, and shortcuts.

The course provides the basis for an in-depth knowledge of the potential of Pro Tools and the correct use of all its parts.


4 lessons; 3 hours each lesson

This mixing course is aimed at those wanting to address and explore the different phases of mixing that deliver a successful sound in a piece of music, starting from acoustic principals and the structure and setting of the mixer, to the management of sounds using processors and hardware and software effects. You will acquire the main techniques and ideas of professional mixing, from the correct setting of the mixer to the use of side-compression, voice processing and dynamics
