Crockett Sound Labs

Crockett Sound Labs I’m offering my services as a sound engineer, music teacher, home recording consultant, live sound assistant, and session musician. I have been playing and performing music for more than 20 years through musical theatre, performing with and recording various bands.

I’ve spent time playing rock, metal, jazz, early 1900s jazz and blues, ragtime, country, Indian music, and all sorts of styles in between. I don’t believe in limiting ones musical tastes when there’s just so much music in the world. I received an Associate of Arts in music and technology at Lane Community College last winter. For three years I’ve been tutoring music and technology there and am a CRLA certified tutor. Outside of that I have been teaching private music lessons of all levels for 5 years, from children to adults. The reason I love what I do is that as a musician I get to apply my ears to the engineering and creation of sound. As a sound engineer I get to come at the field with the foundation of a seasoned musician. As a student of sound I get to appreciate the complexities of science, math and physics. As a physics minded individual, I long to better understand the complexities of sound and all its subtle intricacies. Having worked to learn a variety of instruments over the years I love passing on knowledge and helping others get excited to play and create music. If you check out my thumbtack profile you can see some references from satisfied customers. Beyond that please feel free to contact me with any questions, or even jokes and riddles!

Stuck at home and running out of things to do? Kids driving ya nuts? Weren't you planning on picking up the guitar when you had some spare time? Maybe learning how to use GarageBand or the like?

Well this seems as good a time as any to let you know that I offer online music and audio engineering lessons!!!

If you don't know me too well, I've been playing and performing music for more than two decades, teaching at Guitar Center for the past 5 years, and producing albums and audio projects for the last 7. I also spent two years teaching music at an elementary school so kiddos are more than welcome.

DM here on FB or reach out through my website to get started. I just might have some free time 🙃

Sometimes it’s about making the little things into big things! Promised myself I’d buy my main fantasy football league a traveling trophy if I won. Better than a trophy! This thing weighs a ton with room for 12 years of custom engraved, team name plates. It also came with a free ring! Go ahead. Tell me I’m ridiculous but I know it made you smile ;)

Do you, or someone you know, need a heavy metal holiday gift to end all gifts? Well look no further.

The time has come for me to part ways with my hot rod. I've taken great pride in, and care of, this metal machine. The amp was purchased new back in January of 2012. I've always kept it covered between practices and playing shows. Never a drink allowed on top for punishment by fierce backhand. It...

Woah. It’s been five years I’ve been teaching at Guitar Center. I do believe that’s a personal record for any location. And I got this sick watch to mark the occasion. Compliments of GC. Crazy how time flies.

Here’s one from the archives. Not sure who filmed it. Folk Life some 12+ years ago. We took a Lloyd Smith and his Gutbucketeers song and Kit put Crass lyrics to it. Surprised at just how much bass was picked up.

Working more on my grandma Noni’s records. Hadn’t had a chance to utilize a stereo stylus for recording 78s. My buddy Kit suggested I do so in order to capture the better side of the groove. You can really hear the difference.

Hooboy, been slacking on any updates. Well how bout I just do one now?! Recently finished an audio book most everyone I know should check out (Love Factually: for sSingle Parents and Those Dating Them by Duana Welch). Was a really interesting, educational, and unique experience. It was also a test in patience when it comes to editing these suckers. Just tens of solid hours nothing but editing (you engineers know what I mean). Anyhoo check it out! It's really great content and let me know what you think.

In other news, I've lined up another audio book and can't wait to get started. Got the Dagobah Sound System coming in for a demo. That's gonna be fun as hell. And later in the spring going to be producing a jingle! All in all busy with the CSL aspect of life. In the meantime just teaching the kiddos about music and going Konmari on the house with the Mrs!

Until the next post enjoy these fun time pics.

Online Tone Generator - Free, Quick, No Sign Up Required.

Here's a fun little test to try out. I got up to ~16.7Khz. Not bad for older ears that have listen to waaaay too much loud music.

How high can you hear? This 60 second tone helps you determine the highest frequency your ears can detect. The range of human hearing is typically quoted as being from 20-20,000Hz, but age and prolonged exposure to loud sounds can significantly lower your ability to hear high frequencies. For best r...

My Story

Having played and performed a variety of styles and instruments over the last 20 years I believe I have a strong sense of how to teach, as well as how record, a broad array of music. I love meeting new people and getting to see them grow.

I love teaching because I get to share my experience with others and bring them further into the world of music. The same goes for recording: I love figuring out how to capture those feelings from the instruments for others to share with the world.
