What Others Say About Gary & Sound Master Pro Essentials:

I owe much of my studio knowledge and general technical acumen to Gary.
When I was fresh out of college Gary invested a considerable amount of (teaching) time and energy in me both as a recording artist and as a studio assistant. During that time I came to respect Gary’s considerable knowledge and experience as an audio engineer.
Most of all, however, I came to admire his talent for conveying information in a casual, patient, even entertaining manner. He made me want to learn, and I can’t think of a better asset than that for a teacher.

Peter Zizzo
Multi Platinum Producer, Songwriter, Musician 
(Celine Dion, Jennifer Lopez, Jason Mraz)

Gary is an amazing, one of a kind teacher!
When teaching, he combines his extensive knowledge of the industry with clear and concise explanations. I have learned so much from him.
Watching his videos with clear diagrams, examples, and anecdotes, it’s easy to learn audio engineering from the ground up; from the ins and outs of DAWs to the mixing process, to  setting up a console, and a whole lot more.
You’ll definitely feel prepared and excited to start making the best sounding music with everything you learn from him!

I appreciated the intro on sound (how it is created and what affects the sound). This was able to close some of the gaps I had in my understanding of how a recording is made.

Mayona S

Being able to see the pathway that the audio traveled on in the console gave me a better understanding of all the different components and how the console operates as a whole. 

Kyle C.
Interactive Media Arts Student

Watching the videos led to a serious gain in knowledge and understanding about using a console/mixing board. The visuals representing each situation really helped me to learn more about what the need is for so many features on a console.

Will F.
Theater Student

Mr. Filadelfo makes the subject matter so interesting and thought provoking. Plus he knows how to inject some humor into the lessons and make the students think through things in a logical manner. Highly recommended.

Stephanie Z.
NY Pianist and Composer

Gary’s music production lessons are suitable for everyone, from the very beginner to the advanced. He not only explains each process in detail, he also assures that you truly understand by incorporating real life examples, illustrations, and stories. Gary’s lessons absolutely helped get me to where I am now. 

 S. Min
A & R, FNC Entertainment  -  S. Korea

I always was aware of the different sound input when approaching a mic from different sides, but I never have seen it visualized on a graph, which really helped me to understand the concept of where sound is lost in certain mic’ing scenarios.

Jordan S. 
Business Student

I learned SO MUCH from Gary about how to make music and mix it.
I am now a university professor teaching Music Technology in Korea since 2000. 
I have done much music work; including music and audio post-production for an Olympic Imax Movie, and working on projects for the Korea National Gymnastics Organization as a composer and director of the music.
All these things are because of Gary’s wonderful teaching!

Yun C.
Composer and arranger, owner YJC Music, University Professor - S. Korea

I had the great fortune to have Gary as my first music technology professor.
His teaching style had the ability to combine the theory and the real world practical together in each lesson, while at the same time being entertaining and engaging.
Each topic was presented in a way that made it easy to see how to use the tools and skills beyond our lessons, and to this day I use many of those same concepts in my everyday work.
Gary gave me an incredible foundation to build my career in audio on, and I could not have been as successful without him.

The DAW videos provided a super simple, comprehensive view of how to set up Pro Tools for a mixing session.
I found the color-coding techniques and careful consideration of the inputs and outputs very useful in demystifying some of the daunting complexity of the Pro Tools interface.
From the FX videos, I was super fascinated to know that we can create almost all time-based effects (flanger, phaser, chorus, doubler, echo, etc. *with the exception of reverb), with just a simple delay


Sarah S.
College student, Music Technology

I found the dynamic processing videos to be very inspiring. I had never really touched gates prior, so watching Mr. Filadelfo create a rhythmic pattern based off a separate keyed part gave me a lot of ideas to make my tracks more interesting.

The mixing demo was a great way for me to be introduced into full-scale mixing. I had previously done mixes centered around vocals and guitars, but this was the first time I ever saw behind-the-scenes of a full multi- instrumental mix.
