The current state of audio education often puts students at a disadvantage upon graduation by leaving them with below average skills, not enough hands-on experience, and an incomplete education. There is oftentimes a high level of debt which can limit a graduate’s ability to build a successful career.
There is a need for a new model in education which gives students access to true working professionals and hands-on experience using a world-class collection of gear in facilities designed for one purpose: making excellent music.
The Blackbird Academy addresses these needs by providing a mentor-based program where students will be taught by a unique cast of professional instructors and award-winning guest lecturers. The sole purpose of our campus is for education. Our campus is built on the foundation of Blackbird Studio, the Nashville home to a community of engineers, producers, musicians and technical staff who over the years have taken the art of audio recording to new highs.
