Inspired by the efforts to keep school music programs alive, Side Door Studios (Newark, Del.) donated hundreds of hours of recording time to area schools for their Fourth Annual School Recording Session Program. To encourage the students' musical ambitions, studio owner Fred Layaou invited local high school bands into Side Door to get a better look at the recording process.
“We know that today's music students are tomorrow's composers, music instructors and recording artists,” commented Side Door's chief recording engineer, Paul Janocha. “One of the teachers wrote us: ‘The experience was so rewarding for one of our young men that he has found the courage to apply to music school for college next year.’”
