Hello fellow musicians, sound engineers, music producers, and all other music enthusiasts!
My name is Jeremy Bongiorno and I have been a musician since I was 11 years old. I am self taught in virtually every aspect of music that I practice. The first song I learned on guitar was “House of the Rising Sun” by The Animals. There I was, little 11 year old me making the most awful sounds anyone’s ever heard teaching myself how a guitar works.
That’s where my journey began.
Since then I have been in numerous bands ranging from a less than appealing punk band in middle school, to a touring metalcore band. I gained an incredible amount of knowledge from those years being embedded in the industry and buried in our recording engineers studio.
I worked very closely with our sound engineer for our second studio album. I learned a lot about the recording and sound design processes from him. I have also been a music producer for about 10 years. In the early years I used FL Studio but nowadays I use Ableton Live. I live and breathe music and all the things that come with it, always have and always will.
My Goal With This Site
Being a solo musician in today’s industry can feel like an uphill battle. My mission with Studio Frequencies is to provide reliable information on every aspect of a home studio, even down to the most minute detail. I’m doing this with the hope that this site can make everything a little less daunting for musicians and sound engineers of all backgrounds.
My goals here are as follows:
It’s a seemingly simple mission on the surface, but it’s a lot of work! There are a number of avenues to take in order to provide you guys with great information. I’ve broken Studio Frequencies up into a few key areas and each of them are different from the last. Here’s a list of the types of content I cover:
1. Buyer’s Guides
Whether it be keyboards, mixers, studio desks, soundproofing, headphones, the list goes on. I will give you my views on all this equipment based on the experience I have. Not only that, but the options I pick is based on what gets ME excited because it may just do the same for you. Everyone loves that feeling of knowing you’ve made the right choice on something new. Having confidence in that decision is important.
2. Technical Guides
From in-depth articles on the newest gear to acoustic treatment. I cover the gritty details of the finer parts of a home studio. This type of content is meant for beginners and veterans alike! While it’s true that there’s no shortage of information out there on this kind of stuff, I try to bring a more personalized approach to it.
3. Industry Guides
Knowing how to navigate the music industry is the other half of the battle. I do my best to bring relevant information on the ever-changing landscape of the music world. Here you’ll find everything from music marketing guides to the latest news about streaming platforms. I try to keep things regularly updated, so stay tuned!
How I Write Content
I’ve already talked about my story and my goals. Next I want to show you how I write content and why it’s important to me to that a site like this exists for independent musicians:
Every article you’ll find on Studio Frequencies is heavily researched. I make sure to scour every corner of the internet for the right information on whatever I’m writing about.
We all know how much information is out there, and not all of it it’s 100% trustworthy. I try to find the little nuggets in everything that people have to say on a topic and compile that into one piece.
I’ve made a number of great connections in the music industry throughout the years. Whether it be old band mates, other producers, or sound engineers I’ve worked with.
Before I publish an article I reach out to these like-minded people in the industry and get their opinions. This not only helps me be unbiased, but it gives me even more perspective.
There’s a lot of moving parts in the music industry, as I stated above. As you can imagine, I keep a close eye on it everyday.
If big name brands are dropping new gear or streaming platforms are changing the way they give out royalties, I try to be one of the first to know about it.
Nothing is more important than listening to what the people are saying. The best way to find that information is on social media platforms.
There are endless tight-knit communities of musicians across all of the major socials. I’ve embedded myself in these communities and check in with them regularly to stay relevant.
This section is all but a summary of how I write content. There are so many ways to find good information out there, and I learn new methods every day.
Whenever I have the opportunity, I like to conduct hands-on reviews as well! As Studio Frequencies grows, you’ll see more and more content of that nature, so keep checking in!
