Interested in this program?

Why should I choose this program?

You will develop engineering skills, learn mixing techniques and how to master recorded works. You'll be a part of a live studio environment during your coursework, helping to develop your real-world skills.

To enter the Recording Arts program, you should have a working knowledge of music fundamentals. Our advisory board insisted that a basic knowledge of music theory and performance is necessary in order to be ready to interact with artists in a studio environment.

If you need a refresher on music fundamentals, you can take MUS 134: Music Fundamentals in order to prepare for the first class in the music theory sequence. MUS 134 has no prerequisites and is for students with no knowledge or with limited knowledge in music reading and theory.
