New York City

Audio and Music Production School in New York City, New York

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).

Our music production classes hit different and here is why:

We offer an educational experience unmatched by any four-year university or trade school. Instead of a professor telling you about music production, we have audio professionals show you. By putting you in a one-on-one situation with a professional New York audio engineer or music producer, you’ll help run the recording studio – not just read about it. That means you get real-world experience from inside a NYC music production school.

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.

By placing you with a mentor on his home turf – or remotely if you prefer – you’ll see how to operate in a real-world studio. From setting the mics to working with artists to running the board, this is THE EXPERIENCE you just can’t get in a traditional classroom. You’ll build your confidence, your brand, and your portfolio while the college kids are still working on their prerequisites!

Our NYC Music Production School mentors work with worldwide hitmakers, giving you networking opportunities just not available in standard schools. That’s why we believe this is the best way to learn about the music industry – from INSIDE the music industry.
