Bring Your Musical Ideas to Life at Modern Music Academy

Learn how to mix, edit, master, use plug-ins, audio loops, and capture the perfect performance.

Our production students have the opportunity to get their hands on Audio recording software like Pro Tools, and Ableton using our brand new M1 Mac Studio.

We explore the basics of audio engineering and learn recording and mixing techniques for acoustic instruments and vocals using the same microphones and audio equipment found in commercial studios around the globe.

In addition to helping students capture great performances we also help guide their own musical creativity. Production classes cover instrumentation and sound design so students are able to create the sounds they hear inside their head.

Our production instructors have decades of experience in a wide variety of genres, so whether your dream is producing hip-hop beats, recording the heaviest rock song of all time, or writing the pop hits of tomorrow, as an MMA production student you receive the tools to bring your musical ideas to life.
