Located in the California desert, in the Coachella Valley near the base of Mt. San Jacinto, Palm Springs is a resort community of about 48,000 people, popular for its golfing, tennis and other outdoor activities. Despite its relatively small size, its resort-area status encourages a vibrant music scene and nightlife to entertain vacationers. Besides being home to numerous live music venues and recording studios which accommodate the local scene, two major music festivals–Stagecoach Country Music Festival and Coachella Music and Arts Festival–are held just outside of Palm Springs each year, attracting many thousands of music fans to the area. Coachella alone is one of the nation’s most predominant festivals, featuring bands from a wide range of genres.

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!
