Our alumni

 

 

Luke Leveille
Assistant Engineer, Noble Street Studios

"RAC provided great practical experience for all the fundamentals. When I first arrived in Toronto, I didn’t know anything...until I came to RAC and was taught properly."
 

Adam Herdman
Production Engineer, Corus Entertainment

"I never really understood what I was actually doing. RAC has answered those questions and now I get the science and audio magic behind the scenes."

Hazel Burns
Mix Engineer, CTV

"I had a very positive experience at RAC. I learned a lot of information and gained tons of hands-on experience in a relatively short period of time."

Amy King
Recording Engineer, Grant Avenue Studio

Amy landed a post graduate internship at the famous Hamilton studio founded by Daniel Lanois of U2 and Peter Gabriel fame. Amy has worked at Grant Avenue Studio ever since.
 

Andrew Leung

"I found it very interesting - everyone had a different background. For example, I came from programming, so I was the lead developer- programmer in our projects. Another student was a Graphic Artist, so he did all of our 2D and 3D art."

Paul Col
Post-Production Audio Engineer, Studio Sonomar

"The courses offered at RAC covered multiple dimensions of the audio field, rather than focusing strictly on music, which for me was hugely important in discovering my passion for post-production."

Emilie Bilodeau
Recording Engineer, CBC/Radio Canada

"The teachers were so helpful, always encouraging us to go further in our work and progress as much as possible. I view my time at RAC as the best investment I’ve made in my life."
 

Stephen Williams
Record Label Co-founder, King Luck Music

"I heard about RAC and decided to take the leap into the Sound and Music Recording program, it turned out to be the right place for me."

Michael Maher
Freelance Sound Technician

"[After graduating from RAC] companies were calling me again and again. It was very exciting to finally start my career. It couldn’t have been possible without RAC’s team."
