I'm considering being an Audio engineer, but I'm not sure which schools I should enroll it. I'm in the bay area of California. That means around San Francisco. Does anyone know of good schools that provide education for Audio Engineers as well as other practical fields of education?

SAE Institute. They have campuses worldwide. I'm currently attending in Atlanta GA, and its great.

Full Sail is another great one with a big rep. Its in Orlando.

Really? I heard that SAE eats dick? I might have them confused, but I remember hearing about how they ****ed everyone who went there out of their money and taught them outdated ****.

But as I said, I may have them confused

Berklee has a great music production and engineering program. It's constantly updated and the curriculum focuses on building adapting skills rather than to instill one type of program/method/equipment etc which will eventually become obsolete.

Oh man, i'd love to go there, but the tuition is too big. Is there another alternative to his? With an affordable tuition (similar to a UC - 3000/quarter) but provides a good education in Audio engineering as well as other fields for back up degrees?

Dunno...

if it makes you feel any better...all of the schools in Boston are around that price....


Yeah, that didn't make you feel better. Sorry.

I'm just started this semester at Community College of Philadelphia. It's cheap.

Anyway, I'm (now) a Sound Recording and Music Technology major. I'll start classes in music tech next month. I'm just going for an Associate in Applied Science degree then I'm out (another 2 years). I could keep going at a different school, but I'd rather just get to work and start paying back my loans.

So, I have a question, to anyone who might know. How much would I be making in a recording studio after I graduate?

I heard that I'd have to be an unpayed intern for a few months (even though one of the courses I will take is an internship... do I have to start out as an intern anyway?), then I could make $18,000 a year and then after gaining some experience (and going from an assistant engineer to a full engineer... might have the terms mixed up), I could make $36,000 or more if I'm good, get a good reputation or maybe become a producer. In which case, I'd probably be making an ass load more money depending on whether I'm indie or major label... I really don't know. This is what I've heard. Anybody actually know?

Also, I had another thought... with home recording technology becoming cheaper and more idiot proof, is it possible that I'm wasting my time and this will all be for nothing? Or will people truly appreciate REAL studio recordings and this whole home studio stuff will die out. Sort of like how in the 80's people thought synthesizers would replace REAL instruments, but the fad sort of died out. (Yeah, many many people still use synths, but they didn't replace real instruments. And I'm hoping the same thing will be true for home recording software/hardware.)

I know what you're talking about, but that all depends on which campus you go to. The one I'm at is not even a year old, and some of my professors have had some pretty big name clients.

Scott Kieklak: http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/feb04/articles/youngmasters.htm

^Is one of my professors.

He has also recorded Lenny Kravitz, Tina Turner, DMX, Puffy, Usher, Beyonce, NSYNC, and Collective Soul just to name a few....
