The Best Way to Learn Sound Engineering

Instead of sitting in a classroom, listening to lectures, we put you in a fully immersive environment. By learning the trade from inside a professional studio, you’ll have a better understanding of how to prepare for a session, how to act with a client, and other aspects of the job. It’s no longer theoretical at this point–it’s real life.

Our programs last from six to nine months and cost just a fraction of universities and trade schools. We’ll save you time and money while giving you the hands-on education you need to start looking for work in less than a year. After taking a 4-year degree program, you’ll have a diploma and firm handshake. With us, you could already have three years of job experience in the same amount of time.

Set Your Curriculum

We understand you have a life outside of our programs. And while there are very strict parameters you must follow, we don’t feel you need to suspend your life while working towards a career in music. When accepted into the audio engineering program, you, your mentor, and an Academic Facilitator will collaborate on a schedule that works for everyone.

Working at odd hours is the norm for many of our mentors (the music industry never sleeps), so they have the flexibility to work when you’re able. And unlike a college syllabus, they can craft the curriculum to your experience and intentions. Why worry about video game sound design when you want to work in film? (Although you should never limit yourself.)

Meet Our Mentors

Our mentors have worked with the biggest names in the industry, won the biggest awards, and worked on platinum-selling albums. And now you get to work with them.
