Why Audio Engineering & Music Production?

Music surrounds us everywhere – on the TV and radio, at restaurants and bars, even in the elevator you use to get to work everyday. You may not realize it, but this is all part of the world of Sound and Audio Engineers, in which a musician’s creations are ‘produced’ and thereby transformed into the polished tracks on your iPods and radio.

Audio engineering is the future of digital music. With the help of virtual and hardware instruments, engineers use computers to produce their own compositions. As an Sound engineer, you can either specialise in one part of the recording technique or master the entire process, right to the stage when a final project is submitted to a client.

Our comprehensive Diploma Programs will show you how to put down your ideas and those of other musicians, record in our recording studio and produce in the production suite to achieve a professional sound. At I Love Music Academy, we’ll start Sound engineering by covering the theory and different styles of music. Next, we’ll explore the recording studio space, with an emphasis on audio mixing techniques, sound transmission, audio dynamics, then mixing and mastering techniques, both in the analogue and digital realms. Students of Sound engineering are taught the ins and outs of the DAWs (Digital Audio Workstations). All these concepts will be followed up with hands-on projects in which students will need to log in studio time. Our Recording Studio is equipped with state-of-the-art hardware and software for Audio Engineering.

Don’t just produce,

Engineer your sound!
