Letter to the Judges

  1. 1. 1550 Owens Store RoadCanton, GA 30115April 19, 2012Judges, Senior ProjectCreekview High School1550 Owens Store RoadCanton, GA 30115Dear Judges:My name is Jake Kirby. I am very passionate about music. I play acoustic, electric, andbass guitar. I enjoy exercising and being active despite having mild asthma. My goalsinclude going to college to major in Marketing and a minor in music production, startingor being in a well-known rock band, and running my own recording studio. For my seniorproject I learned how to become a studio engineer in a recording studio.My product is a song I recorded of the local band Anonymous. My research I did onrecording showed I would need to learn many new applications using the computer,microphones, and a variety of other complicated machinery. The research paper gave mean overview of all the applications I would need to learn and use, and my projectfacilitator then taught me how to use of the equipment. I learned this skill effectively andeasily because of my background in guitar playing and love for instruments. The mainobstacle that was in the way of learning this skill was the time and experience needed inthe studio to get the best sound of each instrument.By learning to be a studio engineer I opened up a career path that most people go tocollege for.I learned that when I put time and effort into learning a new skill I can achievethe goal. I would definitely consider this as a career after college or if I can get a job rightout of high school I will pursue this and have fun with it as well.The senior project pushed me to pursue something I normally would not have a chance todo. I was able to learn a new skill that I always wanted to learn but never had a reason orchance to. Thank you for reading this and I hope you enjoy my presentation.Sincerely,Jake Kirby
