During each part of the course, students will receive comprehensive lecture-style instruction and plenty of hands-on time putting what they’ve learned into practice. Projects will be assigned throughout the courses that are designed to help students develop and hone the audio engineering skills that will enable them to be competitive in any music industry job position.

Real World Training

Interspersed with instruction time and hands-on projects, students will also be quizzed on what they have learned and drills will accompany new information, allowing students ample opportunity to showcase their skills and knowledge of the material. The end goal of our course is to prepare students to enter the music production industry as soon as possible after graduation.
