Audio engineering schools nyc?

Not quite sure which forum to post this in, but I'm looking for any suggestions on audio engineering schools or programs in NYC. Any suggestions would be appreciated

NYU Steinhardt has a cool program. Was looking into their Masters program, but couldn't relocate so it is out of the discussion.

Nyu and sae are both very good and both very expensive I'm learning. I already have a degree in an unrelated field so I want take some classes and not necessarily an actual degree program

Or, anyone know how to go about getting an internship/apprenticeship in NYC? Seems like a good way to learn. And I have a basic knowledge already

Why not try finding a great engineer who'd be willing to teach you (for a fee). Who knows if you show your competent, he may stop charging you and then maybe start paying you. If not, you will probably still learn a heck of a lot.

That would be great. I guess just call studios?

The best way to find an apprentice/assistant position at a studio is to become a better networker. That means meet literally every you can and attend every possible social event related to audio. You can't barge in or call them uduring their busy work day. But if you can meet them, they will see your enthusiasm. There are a few stories of established producers/engineers that literally get their start by sweeping the floors at studios.

How bad do you want this? Get off the computer and meet real people in the real world! Best of luck

The Recording Academy's New York chapter has a session this Wednesday with Bob Power. The Audio Engineering Society, NARIP, and the IEEE all have active chapters. All you gotta do is show up and say hello.

Just signed up for a membership of the Audio Engineering Society (The Recording Academy membership was too expensive). Curious to read the Journal.

Anyone here a member of the AES?

After reading lots of old threads about going or not going to some expensive schools, I'm still not sure of what to do.

I'm moving to NYC in june to live for 1 year (to accompany my wife on her doctoral studies) and I really wanted to study music production. I'm a musician and have always been interested in audio engineering and music production. I have a home studio here in Brazil that I've been working on for the past 3 years.

I was inclined to doing the SAE or the IAR engineering/production courses (the IAR costs $17000 and SAE $25000), but after this thread I'm thinking twice.

Would it be better if I could get an internship in a studio? Any recomendations?

Mortimer,

Here's an option in between: the Recording Connection costs about $8400 and covers all the basic tech stuff. They place you with a studio as an intern to go over their lessons with the studio owner each week. A lot depends on the studio you get placed with, and if the first doesn't work out, they'll find you another. I did their course, and have stayed on as a volunteer assistant (or interminable intern) now for three years, just because it's fun and I can afford to. I do know a couple guys who took the course and managed to get their own studios up and running. PM me if you want to talk.

I looked into that.. But one quick search on gearslutz showed countless terrible reviews of that program saying its basically a scam and you learn nothing..

My experience does not mesh with those postings. While I'm sure there are people who are not happy with their results, the same can be said for SAE, IAR, and NYU. While the Recording Connection is not for everyone, it is no scam, and I say that from direct experience. I took the course three years ago, and still assist in the studio where I took the course.

If you PM me, I'll give you my phone number and will be happy to talk about what I have experienced, who I have worked with, and what I got out of the program. When you are in New York, I can introduce you to the studio owner and some of the other engineers I have worked with. I think you will be surprised.

I am an amateur, but a pretty serious amateur, and have long been active in the AES, NARIP, IEEE, and the Recording Academy. If I have a recommendation, it is to meet real people in the business, in person, face to face, to learn what's what. These organizations can all help with that.
