SIOUX CITY (KTIV) – If you are someone who enjoys podcasts, there’s a spot in town where you can make your very own.
“Anyone who has a passion for the subject that they’re talking about they really can have an interesting and exciting podcast to listen to,” says Brendan Smyth, an instructor for The Sioux City Conservatory of Music.
The newest addition to The Sioux City Conservatory of Music is a block pod studio for podcast lovers.
“A podcast is just a group of people having a conversation and you just happen to be there listening to it,” says Smyth.
“It’s a wonderful way to inspire out students in-house and give them another voice,” says Gia Emory, the co-founder of The Sioux City Conservatory of Music.
The music school is celebrating their ninth year with 114 students ages 4 to 78.
Owners say the podcast studio came from suggestions from students.
“It seems like a lot of times when we hear different podcasts where it’s always centered around California or New York or England. It doesn’t seem like there’s a lot for us in the midwest,” says Bronson Wilson, an instructor at The Sioux City Conservatory of Music.
“It gives kids the chance to express their opinion rather than just in song,” says Ron Emory, the co-founder of The Sioux City Conservatory of Music.
“When you hear other people be creative it makes you want to be creative as well,” says Smyth.
Once you hit that stop record button, the school will even edit your podcast for you so its ready to play on your Spotify.
“We’ll do our best to make sure its absolutely the best that we can do,” says Wilson.
For those of you who have dreamed to have your voice in stereo but don’t know where to start, don’t worry.
Classes are available.
“When I go to teach a student I don’t teach them half of what they should know I teach them everything that they should know to the best of my abilities on a professional level,” says Wilson.
“You can learn about the equipment and how to use it properly and then you can also learn about projecting your voice in a way that it will be pleasing to listen to and kind of how to keep a steady conversation going. Anyone can do it,” says Smyth.
