Start earning in your field three years sooner than your colleagues studying at university.
800 hours of curricular training and an additional 120 hours of supplementary workshops—all focused on sound and music production—far exceed the 675 hours of specialized training offered in a typical university major.
The hourly cost of training at RAC is $20.05 (Montreal) and $20.47 (Toronto). If you factor in additional tutoring and feedback sessions, the rate drops even further. By contrast, many university and college programs charge upwards of $40 per hour.
Your tuition also covers the cost of lifetime alumni support, including job search, career counselling, and other potential benefits like grad promotion, course upgrades, and studio access (based on availability).
Most colleges and universities are academic buffets. We put all our focus into a single program that better prepares you for the industry in one year than a generic university program does in four.
Companies around the world recognize and respect grads of Recording Arts Canada. Many sound and music industry employers in Canada are themselves RAC graduates.
Unlike other schools that tack on additional fees, Recording Arts Canada covers everything with its tuition: textbooks, tutoring, studio bookings, supplementary workshops, career counselling, school merchandise, and even your graduation dinner.
