With Gratitude to Chayala
For weeks I had been unsuccessfully trying to find tutorials online on how to use my studio. I then came across the Pro Studio Engineer Ad in the Ami Magazine and after checking it out on the website, I immediately signed up!
Chayala’s course has really helped me from start to finish. The lessons are very clear and easy to follow.
Highly recommended for anyone with a passion for music!
This is just what I needed…It gets straight to the point
First of all, this course is beyond awesome. Thank you soooo much!!! I’ve been doing recordings at home for a while and there were always some things that I wanted to learn/understand better and this course Is just what I needed! And the best part is that it gets straight to the point! So, thank you thank you thank you!
I learned more than I could have imagined
The course I took with Chayala was one of my best decisions. I learned more than I could have imagined from her and her professional experience in the music field. I walked in as a beginner and left the course with so much knowledge and confidence to start my own recording studio.
A solid foundation for advancement in the industry
When I was just starting out in the studio world, and I heard of Chayala’s class, I jumped into it not really knowing what level of an outcome to expect. And I’m so grateful I did. Chayala teaches from the ground up, expounding on the basics to guarantee a true understanding of the ins and out of sound and audio, providing a solid foundation for further advancement in the recording industry. Thank you Chayala!
I now feel confident to hit the studio!
Training with Chayala has been one of the best investments I’ve made. Her lessons were captivating as well as comprehensive. Following completion of the course, I now feel confident to hit the studio! She was available when I produced my first mixes, criticizing and complimenting my work. Much of my success in the industry is attributed to her!
An investment paid back many times over
Chayala Neuhaus’s engineering course was superb. She taught me everything I needed to know about recording in a concise and clear manner. Her course was tailor-made to ensure that I would have the ability and know-how to further my career in recording and it was an investment paid back many times over!
My clients are thrilled!
This is a must if you want to call yourself a Pro studio! I’m thrilled and more importantly, my clients are thrilled! Gave me the confidence to get started! Totally surpassed my expectations.
Chayala genuinely believes in her students’ potential
Training by Chayala means training at the best. I will forever be grateful to Chayala for helping me cultivate a successful approach to recording. I started off knowing nothing about the recording process and by the time I was done I was extremely comfortable navigating the complex software as I built up my own studio. Chayala genuinely believes in her students’ potential and helps them reach their goal.
Targeted to the techniques I needed to succeed in the market
Chayala is “Queen of Studio!” Her talent and expertise takes production to a new level. Her approach was targeted and focused on the techniques I needed to independently produce quality projects and succeed in the market.
Hi. I’m Chayala.
Songwriter, producer, educator, and course creator.
And I’ve spent the past 18 years composing, producing, mentoring, and teaching hundreds of students in the Jewish music industry. My compositions have been sung by artists including Mordechai Shapiro, Benny Friedman, Uri Davidi, Bracha Jaffe, Devorah Schwartz, Moshe Tischler, Boruch Levine, and many more.
After a decade of guiding my students to turn their music passions into successful careers, I created C-Note Academy to save YOU the time, energy, and heartache of trying to figure it all out for yourself. (Believe me when I say that I’ve been there, and I get it.)
In my jam-packed, no-fluff courses, you’ll learn pro-level engineering, composition, music theory, and more through video lessons that are uniquely accessible, aesthetically engaging, and most importantly, immediately actionable.
You’ll get everything you need to advance your skills and pursue the fulfilling, rewarding career you’ve always wanted.
I can’t wait to see where you go next!
How are these courses different from all the online tutorials out there?
Glad you asked! There is certainly a wealth of material available online. But here’s the problem: Much of it is taught by uncertified and unqualified basement technicians who don’t understand YOUR market or the clientele you want to attract. Additionally, the material they’re working with is usually irrelevant and not aligned musically with the projects you want to work on. In short, they just won’t speak your language. C-Note Academy courses are tailor made to give you precisely what you need to build the career you want.
Can I view the course again once I’ve completed it?
Yes. Your enrollment entitles you to 3 months of unlimited access, during which you can watch the lessons as many times as you need as you incorporate the techniques.
What if I don’t have internet access?
We’ve got you covered! Please reach out to find out about our USB leasing plan, available for select courses/bundles.
Are there any kol isha concerns?
Nope! We only use material from live sessions that we’ve done here in the studio for the bestselling album Miracles ll, sung by Yehuda Kirschner. All of the material featured is original and appropriate. There is no female singing content featured.
Do you offer email support if I have a question?
Your enrollment in the Pro Engineer course entitles you to one month of email support, as well as project feedback. In addition, you can also purchase one of our bronze, silver, or gold add-on packages, which offer a range of additional support options as well as bonus content.
There is no support offered for our Pro Composer and Pro Music Theory courses, which allows us to offer those courses at a lower price.
I’ve already been doing this professionally for a while. How will I benefit from a course like this?
Great question! If you’ve started recording or composing on your own and are self-taught, chances are you are operating with the bare minimum level of understanding and are mostly guessing your way through. Just imagine how far you’d go if you knew the step-by-step process and concepts to continue expanding your expertise! You deserve to feel empowered and confident. That’s what these courses will give you. More then any pricey gear or plug in bundles, investing in your training will offer maximum returns.
Do I need any musical background for these courses?
Although it’s always a plus, you don’t need any note-reading skills or professional music training. If you’re at the very beginning of your music journey, our Pro Music Theory course is a great place to start, as it will give you a strong musical foundation for our other courses.
