Situated on British Columbia’s western coast, the city of Richmond is home to around 175,000 people. Part of the greater Vancouver metropolitan area, Richmond is home to the Vancouver International Airport, and is also connected to the larger Vancouver music scene, a highly active and thriving music community that has produced such industry legends as Sarah McLachlan and Bryan Adams, as well as current popular acts like The New Pornographers and Tegan and Sara. Bands and artists from a wide range of genres can be heard playing in venues large and small in and around the Richmond area. Additionally, Richmond is home to several quality recording studios that help to accommodate the ongoing needs of this rich musical culture.

If you have dreams of becoming an audio engineer, live audio technician, music producer, DJ or sound designer, but prefer the suburban areas to the craziness of the big city, then Richmond offers you an ideal alternative: real-world learning opportunities with easy access to all that the vibrant Vancouver music scene has to offer.

Our industry advantage over other audio engineering schools is our innovative mentor-extern approach. Because we know you can’t learn the REAL music business while stuck in a stale classroom, we put you where the real action is: in a real recording studio, where you receive personal instruction from a seasoned industry professional who knows the business inside and out. Not only will you gain valuable real-world music industry experience while working on actual recording projects, but you’ll also form working relationships with many other industry professionals, giving you the inside track on job openings long before the students sitting in the college classrooms. No other school on the planet can offer you opportunities this rich. Enroll in our Richmond Audio Engineering School today, and discover why many of our graduates get hired.

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!
