Professional Audio and Music Production Programs
Work with the Stars and Amplify
We’ve designed our programs to give students real-world experience while they work towards a career in the music industry. We feel being in the studio getting your hands dirty, is a lot more beneficial than being in a classroom. We’re less expensive than most. We let you choose your path. And we don’t demand a two- or four-year commitment.
And it gets better. While we can’t guarantee you’ll have a job waiting for you upon completion of one of our programs, we give you the next best thing: Opportunity. Every day you spend in the studio is another opportunity to impress your mentor, potential clients, and other audio engineers or music producers.
Think of it as an interview process, but instead of going to their office, they come to you. Whether you’re setting up the mics, sitting in on a session, or manning the console on your own, this is your time to show the world what you got. How you handle yourself during these opportunities will go a long way in determining your career path.
More than 25,000 students have found work after completing our programs. Some stay on at the studio they externed at while others found work in other studios based on positive word of mouth. Our students have gone on to open their own studios and a few have even been hired away in the middle of their program!
We provided the opportunities, the connections, and they made the most of them. What will you do when it’s your time?
