Recording Handbook: The basic guide to do-it-yourself demo recording. For my students, singing colleagues, and performing artists who need to make the recordings periodically as
a part of vocal growth and maintenance; this tutorial handbook will guide you through and introduction and basics of self producing
in the singing career have already become aware, finding a really good recording engineer with a lot of experience recording
classically trained voices is both costly and time consuming. Additionally, many great sound engineers have their studios in major cities,
making it all the more difficult for singers who have to travel there. As an artist living seventy-five miles from both New York City and
Philadelphia, I find it too demanding both physically (body, including voice) and mentally (the preparation and the thought of getting to the
studio), and this causes the recording session unfortunately to suffer and results in a poor quality recording. So, I started my search for a
better solution. I have learned and honed my skills, and while I have been recording my singing on my own for five years, the thought of
sharing what I know occurred only six months ago. The idea was to present another option- where it comes to making a recording- to my
students, singing colleagues, and performing artists in general. I started writing a tutorial for a do-it-yourself demo recording handbook- a
basic guide to self-recording. I finished the book and put the demo recording tutorial together as a PDF file, but I didn't really decide how
to distribute it. Unfortunately, my other on-going project needed my attention, so I stopped my thinking process regarding these last
details of the demo recording tutorial. I moved on to the partucular project that needed my attention. Later, something else came up, and
things started to spiral away. This guide has been collecting dust on a shelf on my hard drive ever since.
Out of sight out of mind.
I had forgotten about it- among other ebooks that I have written and filed away- until today, when I started
cleaning up my folders. I was thrilled to come across this ebook! The feeling it gave me was the same as the day I finished writing it!
I found that it was more like a layout of what one has to do when preparing to do his own recording for the first time.
Like most of
my tutorials, instead of simply giving step-by-step instructions, I show the "what" and the "why," then the general "how." The
rest is up to each person to take it upon himself to start his own project.
This method is excellent
for a keen learner eager to develop his skills based upon his own findings, but it won't do any good for someone
whose goal is to follow a formula and get things done without thinking too much. Please take this as a warning. Do not download this
guide if you want a 1-2-3-done deal.
The PDF is far
from perfect, and some things were left out for reasons I don't remember. I omitted some info and/or tips (or I just simply
forgot to include them)! It's not that I wanted to hold onto some secrets, but I just couldn't write everything down. The book, with
illustrations, already contains seventeen pages. If you download the guide and have any questions, please leave them on this page, and I
will answer them.

“Pradichaya Gafaae Poonyarit has twenty years of experience teaching aspiring singers -of different ages- the beautiful singing method
through the healthy way of producing the sound. She obtained her degree in Vocal Performance from the Hartt School of Music in West
Hartford, Connecticut. Having taught privately for many years, as well as having been on the voice faculties of two prestigious universities
(Mahidol and Silpakorn) while living in Thailand, she has extensive experience in vocal instruction. She is also a seasoned performer herself,
having performed several operatic roles with full orchestra, as well as many and varied recitals and concerts. Having such an intimate
knowledge of the vocal mechanism, gained through both teaching and performing, Pradichaya is able not only to pinpoint quickly the
causes of problems in students' execution but is able also to suggest specific exercises to overcome technical hurdles. She is dedicated to
helping her students learn more about their own voices and becoming better singers. In the past five years, she has studied recording and
producing audio CDs and video productions, and she has acquired a vast amount of knowledge and skill: enough to add to her expertise.
She has incorporated her experiences as an artist and as a voice teacher into her studio recording skills, which is not a common quality in
most sound engineers. Her abilityto understand the voice and the singing artists themselves brings comfort to her clients, and brings her
recording quality to a higher level.”
