TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik is proud to announce the EDU-FUNK program in order to prove its unparalleled dedication to the future of recording. The program is a co-operative endeavor between College and University degree level Audio Engineering course study and the award-winning microphone manufacturer.
As a member of the EDU-FUNK program, the school is entitled to deep educational discounts when adding TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik microphones and products to the school's equipment collection. Once a school becomes part of the program, further educational discounts are available to both faculty and students as part of TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik's continuing dedication to excellence for the next generation of music recording engineers.
In addition to educational product discounts, TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik staff will provide on-campus microphone clinics and seminars and participate in school events and performances. Additionally, the company will provide specialized tours of the South Windsor, CT laboratory and manufacturing facility to interested faculty and students. Internship applications from students of participating schools are also given preferential treatment in the hiring queue.
Currently in development are interactive contests and seminars which encompass mixing, microphone placement, and engineering techniques. TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik microphones will be awarded as prizes in the most highly competitive contests. These contests are tailored to the requirements of each educational facility that wishes to participate.
Discounts are also offered from the global network of TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik authorized service departments for existing microphones that may periodically need maintenance. Discounts are also available for all microphone parts and related accessories, merchandise, and additional custom products and services.
Some of the first schools to get involved with the program include Five Towns College (Long Island, NY), The Hartt School of Music at the University of Hartford (Hartford, CT), the Penn Recording Academy (Gettysburg & Philadelphia, PA), and New England School of Communications (Bangor, ME).
