MUSIC PRODUCTION & ENGINEERING

BECOME AN INDUSTRY LEADER

Equal parts musician, technician, and dealmaker, audio recording engineers and producers are flocking to collegiate programs to boost their skills and marketability.

These professionals are the people who set up the mics and design them too. They sit at the mixing board to manipulate raw performance into transcendent musical experiences. Sometimes, they are performers and composers themselves who wish to maintain creative control over all aspects of their work.

Engineers are inspired by acoustics - the properties of sound moving in a space. They combine this knowledge with a technical understanding of amplification and sound recording equipment and concepts to capture sounds at their highest fidelity or in the most interesting way.

With the guidance of our consultants and their list of best-fit music performance schools in hand, an IMS student has a greatly increased chance of getting into the school that is right for them.

You don’t just apply to the most valuable programs - they are competitive and highly sought after the world over. That’s how IMS assists in getting you there - informed by decades in music school admissions, IMS empowers you with portfolio development, mock admissions auditions, simulated admission interviews, faculty assessments, and more to make each application count.

Students who navigate the competitive and often daunting process of choosing and applying to music production programs have their work cut out for them. With IMS, you gain an increased chance for acceptance.

The best music production and engineering schools for any particular student is the right one for them - IMS puts you there.
