Cape Breton

Audio and Music Production School in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada

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).

Located off the eastern coast of Nova Scotia, Cape Breton Island is a regional municipality encompassing the communities of Sydney, Glace Bay, New Waterford, Louisbourg and several others, with a combined population of around 100,000 people. Although this relatively rural area is not a place many people would readily identify with the music business in general, Cape Breton nurtures an active music scene. Due to its Scottish roots, Cape Breton is particularly known as a centre for traditional Canadian-Celtic music, although other genres are represented as well. Live music in a variety of styles can be regularly heard in pubs and venues throughout the island.

Among the more noteworthy musicians from this area are traditional fiddlers Ashley MacIsaac and Buddy & Natalie MacMaster; Celtic group the Barra McNeils; folk artists The Rankin Family; singer/songwriter Gordy Sampson (Jesus, Take the Wheel); Canadian Idol runner-up Mitch MacDonald; and indie rock band Slowcoaster.
