In Kingston, your best pathway to a career in audio starts with an externship in a Kingston recording studio. That’s where we come in.
You could spend 10-50 thousand dollars to go to an audio engineering program at a trade school or college, or you could spend a fraction of that amount and get the same quality education inside a real recording studio. The choice is clear! Get on the inside track, and get your education from the pros in a real-world environment. No one gets you there more effectively or cost-efficiently than our audio recording school.
Situated in southeast Ontario, where Lake Ontario empties into the St. Lawrence River, the city of Kingston anchors a metro population of about 150,000 people. As such, it serves as a hub of culture for the area, including a vibrant and active music scene, fueled in part by the presence of Queen’s University and the Royal Military College of Canada. In popular venues such as Brandee’s, Elixir, the Brass, Ale House and The Grad Club, local and touring bands representing a variety of genres can be heard most nights of the week. Kingston also hosts numerous annual festivals, including the Kingston Jazz Festival, the Wolfe Island Music Festival, and the Limestone City Blues Festival. Among the notable bands and artists with ties to Kingston are rock band Tragically Hip, indie band The Inbreds, singer/songwriter Sarah Harmer, Canadian Idol winner Ryan Malcolm, and rock legend Bryan Adams (who was born in Kingston).
