Richmond (the state capital of Virginia) and Petersburg are located 23 miles apart from one another on the eastern side of the state. The Richmond-Petersburg area of Virginia is often called simply Greater Richmond, and is home to over 1.2 million people. Although not an area many people readily associate with the music industry in general, this area hosts a busy and diverse music scene, with plenty of bands and solo artists performing in a variety of genres at live venues throughout the region. While larger touring acts make stops at bigger venues such as Richmond Coliseum, Landmark Theatre or The National, smaller and local bands perform regularly at Ally Katz, Capital Ale House and other popular spots. Richmond is particularly known for its punk and metal music, with bands such as Strike Anywhere, Gwar and Lamb of God hailing from the area. Richmond is also home to the annual Richmond Folk Festival, a free, three-day event attracting hundreds of thousands of people to Richmond’s downtown riverfront area.

A number of quality recording studios make their home in the Richmond-Petersburg area to accommodate the ongoing needs of the music community. If you are considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, the Richmond-Petersburg area holds plenty of opportunity for you 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!
