What We Offer
Work with the Stars and Amplify
When it comes to audio engineering schools in Charlotte, there are many to choose from. But we feel we offer what no other institution can: Opportunity. The opportunity to learn from heavy hitters on the music scene, to gain experience while you learn, and the opportunity to build your brand and your portfolio.
But Charlotte is a big city, and just like in L.A., N.Y., or any other metro area, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. From day one, you’ll start to make those connections. Working with audio engineers in the studio, learning post-production, and even meeting with other music producers traveling with national and international acts.
What will you do with these opportunities? The CHARLOTTE NC RECORDING CONNECTION PROGRAM will show you how to make the most of them. Instead of being on the outside, learn the industry from the inside. A university may have name recognition, but after four years, all they offer is a degree. With us, you could be networking with future colleagues within the first week. What makes more sense?
