About A cappella Boot Camp (ABC)

After ABC, you'll say: "I can do this. I can make my own amazing album."

A cappella Boot Camp is a 5-day, highly intensive recording seminar. Set foot in our award-winning studio, and we'll take you by the hand, showing you how to plan an album project, choose a track list, pick out equipment, set up your gear, manage your project efficiently, record amazing tracks with your group, market your music, handle licensing, and much more. We'll arm you with the tools you need to be in control of your music, save a boatload of cash, and have a good time while doing it.

No experience? No problem. Halfway there? That's fine too. Whatever your experience level, we'll give you time- and money-saving tips that will help you produce your very own a cappella recording project.

ABC is led by two a cappella industry leaders, Dave Brown and Freddie Feldman. They have a combined 40+ years of a cappella performing, recording, and coaching experience that they bring to every ABC seminar.
