Starting with a rudimentary
device designed to capture sound for office use, audio production has blossomed
into a remarkably complex process that propels the multi-billion dollar
entertainment industry. With this evolution, traditional audio production
pedagogy has focused on the technical skills needed for competency. Yet,
success in these industries requires far more than mere technical know-how.
Thus, “COLA” (Communication, Organization, Leadership, and Analysis/Evaluation)
strives to facilitate the acquisition and implementation of the professional
and personal skills needed to thrive as an audio producer. Further, COLA is
more than a teaching tool for audio production; COLA’s true pedagogical goal is
to mold students into exceptional individuals.
