In fact a recent graduate of our program went on to one of the most prestigious recording schools in the country and upon returning said “I should have saved my money. They just told me the same things I learned at the School of Recording Arts”


  • The recording school creates an environment where the student is placed in a professional position, learning to deal with real world clients and situations. Understanding the hardware technology and applying that knowledge to current professional standards is the key.

    This course covers it all.

  • For me it was a combination of microphone selection, microphone placement and understanding various microphone capabilities. Also, learning how to develop a clearly defined goal for a project and then make the correct choices to get you there.

    I confess that when I started recording on my own before the course, I was a fix it in the mix guy. I think the single most important thing I learned is to always get it right before you ever hit record, and what's right, isn't always what you think it would be.

    Only years of experience can get you that knowledge, but here you'll get it in just a short while.

  • I completed the Sound Recording Academy for audio engineering at The Music Factory and loved it.

    Not only is it a well equipped studio, it equipped me with knowledge on recording and mixing that I never knew was possible.

    It's perfect for someone looking to expand their knowledge, try it out, go onto bigger things, or simply to help further their home recording ventures.

    Chad is a great guy and very approachable as an instructor. He has been in the business for a long time and knows everything you would want to know and more.

    Class sizes are small and the course is very affordable for someone skeptical about jumping into the $10,000 dollar college courses where you would not receive the same amount of 1 on 1 time with the engineer.

    I would highly recommend the course to anyone passionate about music, production, and recording.
