Located in north Texas, the city of Denton is home to roughly 120,000 people, and is the home of the University of North Texas. For a town its size, Denton hosts a very active and vibrant music scene, largely fueled by the university’s well-known College of Music. Numerous noteworthy bands and musicians have ties to Denton and/or the university, including Norah Jones, Deep Blue Something, Bowling for Soup, Midlake, The Rocket Summer, and the late Roy Orbison, just to name a few. While the school itself serves as a hotspot for jazz, a solid indie scene has grown up around it, attracting attention not only from the college crowd but also from the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex located just south of Denton. Paste Magazine recently ranked Denton as the ‘Best Music Scene” in America.

Keeping up with the ongoing needs of the music scene in Denton, a number of quality recording studios make their home in the area. If you are considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, you’ll find plenty of learning opportunities in Denton.

How are we different than other professional audio engineering schools?

We took that old stale classroom concept, rebuilt and upgraded it by putting your classroom in a professional recording studio.Then we emptied out all the other students and left only YOU and YOUR TEACHER (yay for one-on-one learning!) who happens to be a pro music producer (with killer credits) to train you privately (at your pace, full time, part time, nights or weekends available).

Your hands-on learn-by-doing experience starts here!
