  • 8 hours of ″practice mixing″ studio time each month for you to work on a personal project, bring in a musician to record, or practice on one of our sessions

Comprehensive Assistant Engineer Course

This is our flagship engineering course. We’ve hired graduates of this program as assistants and engineers in our studio. The course includes intensive training on the principles of recording – we discuss the physics of sound, electrical engineering principles (yes, Ohm’s law and impedance matching!), and get deep into methods of recording different instruments. We talk recording philosophy and aesthetics – learn about etiquette, client and producer interaction, and learn how to make the correct choices during the recording process to accommodate the outcome you or your client is looking for.

Class hours and fees: $600/month, which includes:

  • 8 hours per month of private one-on-one instruction with one of our studio engineers to learn our 24-chapter audio engineering course
  • Automatic admission to our internship program, offering you weekly opportunities to assist on sessions in our studio like full-band sessions, video shoots, vocal recording sessions, etc.
  • 8 hours of ″practice mixing″ studio time each month for you to work on a personal project, bring in a musician to record, or practice on one of our sessions

Amplifier Building Workshop       

Each student will be educated on the function and topology of a classic guitar amplifier design, and then build, test, and troubleshoot their own amp. Students will each walk away with their own functioning tube guitar amplifier, and the knowledge to keep it running for a lifetime. No experience necessary but soldering skills are a plus!

Class hours and fees: 20 hrs of instruction and build time – $750 plus materials (which vary from amp to amp – inquire about cost)


Electronic Music Composition and Production Workshop

Private, one-on-one or group instruction available
Skill Level: Beginner to Advanced
No music or music production experience required

This class a provides a comprehensive look into producing and arranging electronic music. Working with one of our experienced producers, you will learn how to take your own musical ideas and turn them into a recorded composition using our state-of-the-art recording facilities and our library of instruments available.

The class also emphasizes the importance of communicating your musical ideas and instincts effectively with potential singers, rappers, or songwriters you will undoubtedly collaborate with in your music career. Learn how to quickly choose the right instrumentation, tempo, song structure, and musical key that works best for the vocal artist you work with. Instruction for this class is available in either Logic Pro X, Pro Tools, or Ableton Live.

Through the class of this workshop, you will learn important concepts and philosophies of musical composition, arrangement, and production. Create and shape your own sounds and program drum beats using tools included in Logic Pro X and other industry-standard recording software. We will cover the basic technical concepts of mixing and mastering, but the majority of the class focuses on composition, production, and MIDI sequencing. You will come out of this class with all the knowledge needed to begin, or further, your journey into the wonderful world of music production.

Class hours and fees: 8 hours of instruction per month, $600 per month
