TRAINING IN OUR STUDIOS

Many courses are spent inside classrooms or pseudo studio mock-ups that students are allowed to practice on infrequently. In our program, students are immersed into a learning environment that is a busy, in-use recording facility with 4 different studios utilized by engineers and artists every day. 

HANDS-ON LEARNING EXPERIENCE

Most universities have jam packed classrooms where you're looking at the back of the person in front of you more than the recording gear. Our intimate class size and hands-on training gives future audio engineers a thorough education with actual working industry professionals.

WORKABLE SCHEDULE FOR ANYONE

Many find it difficult to go to school while working a 9-5 job, maintaining a family and social life. In our program, the schedule works for anyone's busy life where the time spent is not only intensive but well spent 1 day each week.

AFFORDABLE PRICE

At the reasonable rate of $3000, Audio Engineer Bootcamp offers a more hands-on practical education for a fraction of the price you'd find at most major universities. 

SHORT, INTENSIVE LEARNING

Our program does not require extensive pre-requisite classes so every student is able to jump right into learning of the important data necessary for you to start your career as an audio engineer!
