Education and Training

In Context Educational Programming,  Private lessons & Non-Profit Activity

Are you interested in learning about songwriting, music or sound production from some of the top musicians, award-winning music producers and staff in the industry?


We provide both group and private hands-on education and training sessions taught IN CONTEXT within a real recording studio environment. It’s a unique experience to learn at your own pace. We focus on teaching you a custom tailored class, shaving years off your learning curve. Imagine breaking down your favorite songs into its fundamental elements, identifying key areas of improvement in your skill-set and learning how to create.


Depending on our project schedule we usually hold group classes in January and July / August and individual lessons are available all year.
