STUDIO 160 : Teaching at the highest level
A university program offering the highest level of education at the end of which successful students will be delivered a Master’s degree in sound engineering by the French ministry of education.This challenging master’s program was created in order to train the next generations of sound engineers and to make sure that their knowledge, experience and capabilities would make them a first choice anywhere in the world for companies in need of seriously trained professionals.
In France, very few institutions (public or private) give a proper training when it comes to sound engineering and all the areas the field encompasses. In most cases, after completion of the proposed programs, students will hardly have the proper knowledge and abilities to perform efficiently in a professional environment specifically dedicated to sound recording and manipulation.
Through our program, we are committed to teach what is to us essential to succeeding in a field to often undermined by misinformation:
- Sound wave behavior and acoustics through physics and applied physics, electronics, mathematics and computer science
- Specific training in areas such as recording, editing, mixing and mastering (in stereo and 5.1) on the best equipment money can buy
- Understanding music through music production, concepts analysis, music to picture
The program will be entirely taught in English on a three year period, a first year, equivalent to a Bachelor’s degree once successfully competed and a two year Master’s program.Teachers (working professional engineers and producers) most of which have a very impressive resume will be recruited in France, Europe and the United States of America.
Many professional sessions will take place during the school year. Students (two at a time) will have the opportunity to participate to most of those sessions. This opportunity will give our students a priceless experience and a solid resume prior to getting their first job.
Through Candace Stewart, Thierry Migeotte met many of the most successful engineers and producers in the United States. Candace helped build a network of true professionals who are looking forward to coming to Clermont-Ferrand to teach and to record. Students will soon learn from engineers and producers such as Ryan Hewitt (Harry Connick, Jr, Johnny Cash, The Dixie Chicks, Red Hot Chili Peppers…), John Paterno (Los Lobos, Suzanne Vega, Tim McGraw, Joan Osborne, Eros Ramazzotti, Faith Hill…), Carmen Rizzo (Alanis Morissette, Rita Mitsuko, Temposhark, Jem, Oakenfold, Kate Havnevik…), Al Schmitt (Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, Diana Krall, Jackson Browne, Neil Young…), and many others.
After completion of our program, students will be able to find jobs in diverse areas such as music recording and mastering, music production for television, movies, video games and commercials. They will also be able to work as technicians in radio stations or television sets. Their knowledge in music, physics, electronics and acoustics will make them a first choice in the fast growing home theater industry worldwide.
This Master’s program will be taught by the best working professionals in today’s market along with top scientists and teachers at Blaise Pascal University.
Enrollment has started for next fall (2012)
Short training programs (3to 6 days) in specific areas of the recording business will also be offered to professionals wanting to improve their knowledge and practical abilities. 5 to 7 weeks per year will be scheduled to deliver those training programs.
