PORTLAND — Musicians don’t have to perform on stage, some work their magic behind the scenes laying down tracks and polishing sound. The Maine Academy of Modern Music gives young music lovers a taste of what it’s like at Recording Studio Camp to be held from Sept. 28 to 30 at The Studio, 45 Casco St.

According to a news release, MAMM Recording Studio Camp teaches the fundamentals of recording (preproduction, mic placement, over-dubbing, mixing, mastering) in a state-of-the-art recording studio with one of Portland’s top engineers. The camp is held at The Studio led by engineer Jim Begley, an 11- year resident engineer and live sound engineer of choice for countless bands and venues.

Not only will students be hands-on with the same topnotch gear as the pros, they will be working on a recording of a live band and learning inside tips and tricks of the trade.

Past camps have engaged the services of popular bands, such as the internationally acclaimed Paranoid Social Club, featuring members of The Rustic Overtones.

The camp fee is $200.
