Audio and Music Production School in Chicago, Illinois

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).

We hit different and here is why:

You remember school, right? Go to class for an hour, wait for a bell, and then shuffle to the next class. Different teachers, different subjects, doing what you needed to make sure you checked all of the graduation requirements. And then it’s four more years of the same thing at a university to learn the recording arts – at a considerably higher price tag!

You don’t have to go into extreme debt to go to Music Production and Audio Engineering School

We can train you in a real recording studio for far less. Play it smart–get on the inside track, and get connected as you get educated. Our audio recording school is a highly effective and affordable way to start your audio engineering career.

Chicago was a mecca for early jazz, gospel, blues, and other forms of music while producing many of today’s most influential artists. But it’s also your home! And in this “new normal,” your home may be the best place for you to start your audio engineering, music production, post-production, and other music recording education.

While you may still be placed in a CHICAGO AUDIO ENGINEERING STUDIO, all of our programs can also be taken remotely. We won’t let a pandemic get in the way of chasing your dreams.
