Although New Brunswick, NJ isn’t on the tip of everyone’s tongue with regard to the music business, this city of 55,000 in northeastern New Jersey has been a major player in New Jersey’s music scene, and continues to be an influence today. New Brunswick’s music scene (fueled in part by Rutgers University) has been a longtime hotspot for rock, punk, and indie/underground music, having spawned such bands as The Smithereens and Bon Jovi, as well as modern rock acts Thursday, Pavement, Streetlight Manifesto, The Gaslight Anthem and others. Independent music continues to be a staple of the New Brunswick area, with indie labels Ferret Records and Don Giovanni Records making their home here.

Keeping step with the active music scene, New Brunswick is home to several quality recording studios–and if you want to be trained as an audio engineer, music producer, sound designer or live audio tech, one of these studios could become your personal classroom.

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!
