Our music recording school is the smartest, most cost efficient program found anywhere on the planet.
Located along the Atlantic coast, Halifax serves as the capital of the province of Nova Scotia, hosting a metro population of nearly half a million people. A cultural centre for the Atlantic region of Canada, Halifax has a very active, thriving and diverse music scene, fueled in part by the presence of several universities in the area. Genres such as pop, Celtic, jazz, punk, new wave, hip-hop and country have had solid representation in the Halifax music scene over the years, with local and touring acts regularly gracing stages of larger venues such as the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium and the Cunard Event Centre, or in one of Halifax’s many pubs or smaller theatres. Halifax also hosts annual music festivals such as the Atlantic Jazz Festival, Halifax Pop Explosion and In the Dead of Winter. Notable musicians and bands with ties to Halifax and the surrounding area include country legends Hank Snow and Anne Murray, singer Sarah McLachlan, alt-rock band Sloan, and rock act The Jimmy Swift Band, to name a few.
Halifax serves as home to numerous quality recording studios to accommodate the ongoing needs of the music scene.
