The Art Institute of Vancouver’s Professional Recording Arts program is designed to prepare graduates for careers in the field of audio engineering and production. Through rigorous study of theoretical concepts, industry practices, and hands-on production techniques, students work to develop the technical skills and aesthetic sensibilities needed to become professional engineers, technicians, producers and business people.
The tools for recording, editing, and delivery of audio are evolving at a rapid pace. Today’s professional audio engineers and producers must constantly stay abreast of current developments in equipment technology and production methods. To do this, they must have a solid foundation in the basic physics of sound and acoustics as well as skills in equipment operation, usage, and design.
The Professional Recording Arts program will meet the needs of industry by offering a curriculum that provides students with a solid background in technology, theory and industry practices. Practical hands-on experience with recording and live production equipment is essential to being prepared for the contemporary market place.
The Diploma in Professional Recording Arts is a six-quarter, full time course of study that prepares students with the essential skills and knowledge necessary to work in the field of audio. Graduates from the Diploma program may begin careers in music recording, live sound, television, home studio, radio, studio management, corporate AV, game audio, technical support, and others.
Students may satisfy the Recording Arts Electives by selecting a program concentration in music, film or game audio.
