Introducing: Studios 301 Academy

Finished an audio qualification and looking for real-world practical experience?

The newly launched 301 Academy is a chance to learn direct from Australia’s leading recording studios and engineering team.

The aim is to bridge the gap between the completion of a tertiary audio degree or diploma, and working as a full-time audio engineer.

Working alongside a selected team of Studios 301 engineers, the sessions will run over 5 weeks and follow an end-to-end lifecycle of a real project which includes pre-production, recording, mixing, mastering and music business workshops. One of the most unique layers of the experience is that it is bolstered by a number of Studios 301 industry events which will give participants direct access to industry personnel and the chance to start curating their own networks. 

Created by Studios 301 owner and SAE founder Dr. Tom Misner, 301 Academy features Australian music industry heavyweights such as Grammy Nominated 301 Engineer Simon Cohen (Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Starley, Thelma Plum, Thundamentals) , legendary A&R Manager Peter Karpin (Former Director A&R Sony, Universal Music), Chief Mastering Engineer Steve Smart (Midnight Oil, Tash Sultana, Ocean Alley, Vance Joy), APRA, Listen Up Music and the Studios 301 engineering team featuring Stefan Du Randt, Jack Garzonio and Harvey O’Sullivan.

The inaugural session kicks off on Monday 19th August 2019.

“I created the Studios 301 Academy to give upcoming engineers an all practical experience working from Australia’s only top-tier studio. Taking people out of their classroom environment and putting them in one of the world’s best studios with real working engineers is invaluable experience you can only get at 301.”

“Studios 301 Academy is the perfect culmination for anyone who has been studying to break into the recording end of the Music Industry. In my close to 5 decades of working in the Music Industry in A&R and Promotions, I’ve not seen anything that in 5 weeks gives such a comprehensive and thorough insight into the important aspects of operating as an up and coming Engineer/Producer. I look forward to being involved and giving an overview of the key elements needed in creating great music that can rise above the competition in a world that is more crowded than ever before when it comes to talent.”
