This course taught me how to set up a freelance structure. Knowing things about invoicing and tax and learning how much I should charge. Abbey Road taught me that I have to look after this myself.
Before I was at Abbey Road, it was easy to write a song, and get a singer. But the songwriting process doesn’t work like that. It was important to understand vocal production, writing, and music. It should all happen simultaneously.
Abbey Road really helped me with the foundation of audio. It’s an overwhelming subject at first, but [the course] really breaks it down and really makes it digestible.
The time I spent at Abbey Road Institute helped me transform my skills. I came from a bedroom producer who made music as a hobby to an audio professional.
Abbey Road was the perfect stepping stone into my professional career as an artist and audio engineer.
Studying the past year at Abbey Road has been phenomenal. The teaching staff are top notch and I now have a community of people to draw on who are as obsessed with music as me.
Abbey Road Institute gives students the head-start they need to succeed in today's industry. The facilities at Melbourne are second to none and it’s great to see students grow and be rewarded for their efforts.
