All performers and composers require excellent recordings of their work to advance their careers. We’ve compiled the resources below to guide you in creating video and audio samples that will let your artistry shine. 

Self-Producing Recordings:

Self-producing recordings can be a cost-effective way to create media. The recording of our Recording at Home event provides a quick overview on how to get the most out of your home recordings. 

If you’d like a more detailed exploration, Peabody Recording Arts has created a thorough 7-part Guide to Creating Better Recordings. (JHED Required) The videos cover:

  • Part 1- The Building Blocks Of Sound
  • Part 2- Room Acoustics
  • Part 3- Critical Listening
  • Part 4- Microphones
  • Part 5- Setting Up A Recording Session
  • Part 6- Editing, Mixing, and Creating A Final Product
  • Session Video Comparison

Recording Equipment:

The Arthur Friedheim Library has a vast selection of recording equipment available for Peabody students who wish to do their own recordings. The equipment catalog is located here.

Among the available pieces of equipment are Zoom Q2n Video Recorders, which are highly user-friendly, all-in-one video and audio recording devices.

Peabody IT has also compiled a list of additional Technology Recommendations for students making recordings at home.

Recording Services at Peabody:

If you want professional help, Peabody’s Recording Arts program offers complete audio and video recording services to students at competitive rates.

If students enlist the services of the Recording Arts Department, they can arrange to record in the on-campus Recording Arts studios, and can also schedule recordings in Peabody’s concert halls. Editing and mastering services are also provided.

For costs and other information, visit the Recording Arts Department rates and policies page.


To help cover the costs of recording, students can apply for career development grants; composers may also seek funding from New Music USA and other external grantors.
