The YouTube video above only tells part of the story of what you’ll experience at The Blackbird Academy. We’ve designed our program like no other. The Blackbird Academy students don’t hear about important techniques in a sterile classroom. With top instructors and guest mentors, they experience and practice the concepts first-hand with professional rooms and gear – the same gear and facilities used to make hit records every day.

Who are our instructors? Our instructors are longtime recording and live sound engineers, educators, studio owners, authors, and recognized top audio industry professionals. 

Who are our guest mentors? They are engineers, producers, and artists like Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Evanescence), Ken Scott (The Beatles, Lou Reed, Pink Floyd, Jeff Beck), Dave Stewart (Eurythmics, Mick Jagger), Ben Wysocki (The Fray), and Tim McGraw, plus Nashville songwriters, drum, guitar and studio techs – all top professionals in their field. There is no other program that delivers this level of content in such a short time. If music and live sound production are all you can ever see yourself doing, then The Blackbird Academy is your best choice for audio education.
