Our Standard program lasts 20 weeks. Students meet each week with Asaf Fulks for a one hour private session and with a private tutor 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. They see first hand what it takes to run a successful studio business and record label, from a top industry professional -- gaining valuable experience and credentials for their resume. After the final lesson students are required to pass our final exam and Waves Audio's certification exam. Upon successful passing of these exams and completion of their final projects 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 to write, produce, record, mix and master their own professional songs, film scores and/or sound design projects. Our graduate Ako's final project has nearly 250k views on Facebook alone and has reached over a million people!
We are pleased to offer outstanding graduates the opportunity to have their project released under OC Recording and featured in Now Hip Hop Magazine, nowhiphop.com and thisis50.com upon graduation!
