I attended the basic sound engineering class so far and plan to attend some labs and additional classes. This school is the real deal. I took this class because I wanted to learn more about running live sound and I found it very very helpful. Great instruction in the basics!!

The AEI is a great school and a great way to get hands on experience with professional gear. You have classes in a studio and opportunities to sit in on recording sessions, and run live sound. For the self-taught or those just starting out, this school will supplement and enhance your understanding and provide you a framework by which to continue to learn and grow as an aspiring audio engineer. It provides an environment of other like-minded people who are motivated to learn and work with audio at a high level, while also providing a reference for your work, so you can know where you need to improve most. But the greatest resource I now have, thanks to Marius and his school, is a network of professional studio and live sound engineers who are currently a part of the sound industry, and have tons of knowledge and experience with Audio. Having access to instructors and their knowledge has had the biggest impact on me and my growth in this field. I would highly recommend the Audio Engineering Institute to anyone who wants to understand Audio in a deeper, more practical way.

This school is a great play to come if you have little to none experience in the music industry. He teaches the concept of music. The different in mics and mic techniques for successful home recording. This school gives you of the knowledge and hands on training to be comfortable to walk into a high end studio and perform the tasks at hand. I am proud that I made the choice to attend.. Great school
