PROGRAMS

Our Studio Engineering and Live Sound Engineering programs feature hands-on, experiential training. We concentrate on doing, not talking about doing. Students are assessed more on hard skills than paper testing, making you all the more ready to start working in the professional recording and live sound industries when you graduate.
