RAC offers the most comprehensive career training in sound & music recording, engineering, production, and business.




The reason students choose RAC is for what we offer beyond the classroom.

What you bring to RAC: raw talent and passion. What RAC brings to you: the production skills and community you need to take your music from laptop to market.

 

 

 

Our advanced Electronic Music Production program is the only program where students create, publish, and market their own EP within the core curriculum.

  • Receive specialized training on their chosen instrument (major).
  • Receive 360 degree training through the core music production curriculum.
  • Build an immediate network of potential collaborators and colleagues.
  • Exclusive access to RAC Workshops with industry gurus and Grammy-winning masters.
  • Produce and coordinate three live concerts.

Finding your way alone in the industry is extremely difficult. At RAC, you have the unique benefit of joining an already-established and diverse web of like-minded creators. Our ever-growing network of artists, producers, engineers, beat-makers, and sound recordists across all genres gives you an instant family of talented potential collaborators and cross-promoters.

Before you leave RAC and with the help of our organization, you'll have created, produced, mixed, mastered, and released your own project as part of the curriculum provided. You'll have your own artist website, a profile on RAC's platform, and a social media presence. We also offer post-graduation artist development, A&R, and distribution services to those who qualify.
