SAE UK were delighted to welcome Grammy nominated music producer Tony Dofat this month to deliver masterclasses across all 4 campuses in London, Oxford, Liverpool and Glasgow.
Tony has worked with some of the most famous artists in the world in the Hip Hop and R&B genres and took time out of his busy schedule to visit SAE as part of a world book tour.
Tony spoke in detail about his fascinating career journey that has seen him work with the likes of Jay Z, P Diddy, Mary J Blige and Will Smith.
He then invited SAE Audio students to play their tracks to the audience and was incredibly impressed with the standard of production. He then offered invaluable advice on how students could enhance their work to the next level.
Student Corentin Le Fur, a.k.a. Skybrom commented on the experience:
"It was very interesting to get feedback from such a respected producer. We are going to stay in touch so Tony can give me further feedback on my tracks.”
Tony Dofat commented:
"I loved speaking to the guests at SAE as I got to feed off of the energy from the audience. The students should continue to be driven by their passion and they will succeed.”
Audio tutor Marc Rose commented:
"Tony spent two days at SAE Oxford teaching songwriting and electronic music production followed by a masterclass. The stories, industry insights and production hints and tips were both fascinating and inspiring.”
Finally student Abdul Hamid summed up the experience
“I thought it was a wonderful and priceless opportunity to be critiqued by Mr. Dofat. His advice and tips will sure go a long way in my future productions."
The Tony Dofat masterclass was part of a new series of free SAE Extra events open to the public where creative media industry professionals share their expertise.
