The Unconventional Approach
It is Sylvia’s passion to share her knowledge of recording, and she has taught hundreds of students and interns one-on-one in workshops, educational and real-life settings. Her instruction is designed to cultivate a “sky’s the limit” approach to recording, and often includes demonstrations on recording with lightbulbs, small appliances, pickles and sausage. Yes, really.

Recently Sylvia has conducted workshops in Germany, France, Norway, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Orlando, Indianapolis, Boston, Denver and Seattle. She has instructional series’ through notable companies such as Lynda.com, Mix With The Masters, ASSR and CreativeLive. Sylvia is now available for seminars, lectures and workshops.
