Located in western Ohio, the town of Lima is home to around 38,000 people. Despite its small size and rural location, Lima is home to its own active music scene, with local and traveling bands and artists playing in a variety of musical styles in several live venues around town. Notable musicians with ties to the Lima area include jazz musician Joe Henderson, pop-punk band Hit the Lights, and Beach Boys founding member Al Jardine, to name a few.

The Lima area is home to several recording studios, and is also in driving distance to larger cities such as Detroit, Cleveland and Cincinnati. If you are interested in a career as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, but prefer the small-town environment to the big city, Lima offers a pleasant place to learn.

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!
