Program Director of Music Business
Audio Production Technologies
Ron Marschall has been performing and recording music since the age of 16. As a drummer and background vocalist for several bands, he has toured the US extensively and has collaborated as musician and recording engineer on countless recordings and music projects. In July of 2008 his former band, Christie Front Drive, was sited as one of the most influential punk bands by Alternative Press magazine. Born and raised in Denver, Colorado, Marschall earned his bachelor of science in music with emphasis in audio engineering from the University of Colorado at Denver.
Before leaving snowy Colorado for sunny Arizona, Marschall worked as an assistant engineer at Pet Sounds Recording Studio for Robert Schneider tracking and mixing releases for the Elephant 6 Recording Company, including The Apples In Stereo albums Her Wallpaper Reverie, The Discovery Of A World Inside The Moone and Electronic Projects for Musicians.
Since moving to Arizona, Marschall broadened his expertise producing radio and television advertising spots as well as recording primary sound and post-production for video. He also spent some time scrutinizing evidentiary recordings as an audio forensics analyst. Never willing to give up recording music, however, Marschall worked for several years as a staff engineer at the Gray Room Recording Studio in Glendale, and currently works as a freelance engineer around the Valley.
Marschall started teaching at Mesa Community College as an adjunct in 2005 and became the director of the commercial music program at Scottsdale Community College in 2009 and loves sharing his experience and enthusiasm for audio with his students. In addition to teaching, Marschall continues to work in the industry as both an engineer and musician.
