One of the benefits of being a student at the Canadian Trebas Institute is the ability to transfer credits to Sir Paul's Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts. One Trebas graduate , Adam Fulton, recalls an extraordinary experience he had while enrolled in a LIPA audio engineering and recorded music production course. Fulton was selected to help Sir Paul and his sound engineer Geoff Emerick during a full-day recording session! His responsibilities included setting up, recording and assisting Mr. Emerick in mixing sounds:"Paul acted as a producer. The studio was set up so he could teach us and there were 30 other sound engineering students there who were breathing down my neck and wanted to be where I was. Paul brought some musicians and we went through the production of a CD.
"It's weird in that I think it was the easiest session I ever did. It was the most flawless, as well. He immediately puts you at ease. I could do my job even under such pressure."
