Albright College is now offering an online Music Production Certificate program, in which students will earn dual Pro Tools certification in music and game audio while learning to navigate the music products industry. Classes begin August 16.
Tailored to adults, the new Albright School of Professional Studies program consists of five classes that teach students to navigate the music industry by blending the vocational skills of Avid’s Pro Tools music software training with critical thinking – all while gaining industry-standard music technology certification.
“As one of only a few Avid Learning Partners in Pennsylvania, Albright College is uniquely-positioned to offer pre-professional online instruction in music production, audio engineering, and the music products industry,” said Mike D’Errico, Ph.D., director of music technology and composition at Albright. “Students will receive an industry-standard music certification in Avid’s Pro Tools software, as well as a second certification in Pro Tools for game audio.”
Students will learn how music is recorded, mixed, mastered and distributed in the global marketplace, and will gain tools to help change the music products industry for the better.
