Audio and Music Production School in Salinas, California

We took that old stale classroom concept and 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).
