Our Standard program lasts 20 weeks. Students meet each week with Asaf Fulks for a one hour private session and with Eric Sheffield for a two hour private session to cover the weekly lesson. Lesson times are flexible. The rest of the week students are encouraged to shadow live studio sessions, utilize our studios to work on their projects and to collaborate with other students. In addition to music production and audio engineering we teach students about the industry, how they can succeed and how to become marketable candidates for jobs. After the final lesson students are required to pass our final exam and Waves Audio's certification exam. Upon successful completion of these exams students will receive our Audio Engineering and Music Production Certificate accredited by the NPSAG and Waves Audio WCP Certification.

Our Extended Program is designed to give students extra time in our studios and guidance from our instructors. We firmly believe that a strong body of work in the music industry is just as valuable as any certificate or degree. The Extended Program consists of 10 extra weeks following the completion of the Standard Program. During this time students focus on building a strong portfolio. They will meet one-on-one with Asaf and Eric to write, produce, record, mix and master their own professional songs, film scores and/or sound design projects.

20 week standard program tuition starting at $8,000.
