Owner and CEO of Studios 301, Tom Misner’s passion for music is legendary. Whether as an engineer, musician, producer, educator or studio designer, his experience extends over 40 years. His name of course is widely recognised as the founder and driving force behind the world’s largest creative media education group, SAE Institute – earning him honorary doctorates from Middlesex University in 2001 and from Columbia University in 2005 for his services to transnational education.
After originally acquiring and rebuilding Studios 301 in the late nineties, Tom divested his Australian business interests in 2011 only to reacquire the business in 2016. Recognising the ongoing need for a facility the calibre of Studios 301 in Australia – and the value of its legacy – Tom committed, rebuilt and designed the new Studios 301 alongside master acoustician, Jochen Veith. The new multi-million dollar studio now stands as Australia’s only top tier recording studio, and is unarguably one of the world’s finest acoustically designed facilities.
