The Centrepiece Program

Built around a project-based curriculum that pushes students to create & collaborate.

Sound and Music recording technology has undergone tremendous change, and the music business continues to evolve rapidly. RAC helps aspiring and creative individuals gain a competitive advantage by training them in our world class studios and cutting edge digital labs. Over 50% of that training time at RAC is spent working hands-on with the equipment and working with our instructors.

RAC's program revolves around practical hands-on instruction. Our students are composers, recording engineers, mixers, beat makers, recording artists, foley artists, sound effects designers and live sound engineers. RAC program designers, teachers and guest lecturers continue to make us proud; recording, mixing and producing projects that have won Grammy, Juno, Golden Globe and Gemini awards.

RAC has cultivated an intimate and sensitive learning environment that encourages students to creatively explore and experiment. Our highly successful approach to learning has helped our students develop impressive sound and music recording skills. The objectives and contents of the Sound & Music Recording program revolve around developing solid skills in digital sound production, music recording, computer-assisted sound design, electro-acoustics, MIDI, music for film and television, post-audio, and surround sound mixing and recording. Our Sound & Music Recording program reflects all of the major components of the rapidly evolving audio production universe.
