If you are a music lover with an interest in the technology and methods used in the recording and production of music and sound, the Audio Engineering program is for you!

This program will provide familiarity with cutting-edge equipment, terminology and methods used in the industry today, preparing you for a studio internship or for acceptance into leading music recording college programs. Field trips to local recording studios and guest speakers will give you a first-hand look at the industry.

In our professional studio setting, equipped with the same “trueto-life” technology that any high-end, professional recording studio would have, you will work on many exciting hands-on projects as you learn about the physics of sound and acoustics. In addition to learning the processes of tracking, over dubbing, mixing in multi-track recording, mastering, and CD/DVD/tape replication, you will closely study the components of the mixing console, amplifier, speakers, tape machines, channel strips, master sections, and digital workstations.

You will demonstrate various microphone types and setups for different musical styles and utilize recording techniques including musical equalization, compression, and limiting during recording sessions. In the post-production portion of the program, you will explore audio-for-video applications like sound design and scoring for film, DVD, and TV.

While this program will prepare you for employment or further education in this exciting and rewarding field, the recording industry is extremely competitive. Students must be very hardworking, self-motivated, and have an ambitious work ethic in order to succeed in this program or a career in the industry.
