What was the best part about your RAC experience?

I really enjoyed the hands on experience that I received while I was here. Getting to test the various waters of the music industry and having something to show for it in the end. Excellent staff, and great memories.

Ryan Parker, RAC Alumnus

The most valuable experience for me in this school was doing post-production. It was a great experience working with other talented students and putting ideas into the project. I had a lot of fun, shared a lot of laughs and it was never a boring project. I learned so much from the post-production final project because it gave me a better understanding of the big responsibilities of an audio engineer.

Andres Guerra, RAC Alumnus

This one year at RAC has taught me so much about the music industry as well as being a studio engineer. The TAs and teachers were nice and they made learning at RAC a fun. Enjoyed a lot of studio sessions especially for our Matrix audio production. Wish it was longer than one year. Wish everyone a great summer and success in the future. Special thanks to Matt for helping me with concepts that I didn’t understand and for the test reviews.
