Audio and Music Production School in Bakersfield, California

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).

Musically speaking, Bakersfield, California doesn’t have the same high profile as Los Angeles, its neighbor to the south.  However, Bakersfield definitely has a rich musical heritage of its own.  Back in the 1950s and 1960s, the city was a hub for country-western music, creating its own answer to the Nashville scene by spawning the legendary Bakersfield Sound, pioneered by local country greats Buck Owens and Merle Haggard. More recently, Bakersfield was influential in the emergence of modern rock genres such as alternative metal and nu-metal, spearheaded by bands like Korn.

Today, while the Bakersfield Sound can still be heard in venues around town, Bakersfield hosts a wide diversity of genres, including rock, alternative and punk, and is home to a burgeoning underground music scene, as well. Numerous live music venues and recording studios around town accommodate the needs of this vibrant music scene.  If you are considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, Bakersfield provides an excellent alternative to relocating to the craziness of Los Angeles or Nashville.
