This paper describes the development and production of a video training tutorial that addresses audio production questions regarding proper application of audio production tools. The purpose of this project is to enable a basic understanding of audio theory and an understanding of the principles involved in recording an audio event. The tutorial teaches a base line level of competency for recording in a studio and graphically explains three major production areas: the equipment and its usage, correct microphone placement, and the recording process. In addition, this paper will briefly examine how people learn with instructional and media aids. Although designed specifically for recording at the Noel Fine Arts Center, the tutorial, because it explains real-world basic theories, is helpful in any recording situation.
