Renowned folk singer Joan Baez spent the afternoon at Pyramind (, a San Francisco — based digital audio training center, to record vocals for Bay Area — based artist/DJ Rocker T's newest song for peace, “The Way Life Should Be.” Pyramind president Greg Gordon engineered the session in The Vault, one of the facility's three studios, which offers a Pro Tools|HD rig with a Control 24 mixing desk and Genelec 5.1 monitoring. In addition to its existing Digital Producer and Post-Production certificate programs, the school recently launched its Electronic Music Producer (EMP) certificate, an eight-month program that includes courses in various music software, songwriting, music theory, mixing and music business. The school also offers night certification programs in Digidesign Pro Tools and Apple Logic Pro 7.
