State-of-the-Art Facilities

Home1.1 3Our state-of-the-art facility is both a school and a world class recording studio used by major label artists as well as local bands. These are the same studios used by Columbia College and DePaul University to teach their recording and production programs.

One of the coolest things about this facility is the co-mingling and networking opportunities that take place every day as students, instructors, staff, and studio clients all get to know each other in this shared commercial and academic space. The end result is a communal environment where professionals and students work together to reach their common goals of making better music.

Students include hobbyists, part-time music makers, and working professionals of all ages and interests. Where else will you find a bunch of rockers, house heads, and backpackers all coming together to learn, collaborate, and network?

Our cutting edge training formula provides a perfect blend of structured academic programming and project based hands-on training. This combination of activity and academics provides the perfect backdrop for one of the best educational opportunities offered anywhere in the country.
