CIM is no longer accepting new students for its Audio Recording department, as the program will be discontinued once all current students of the program graduate. CIM’s Recording Arts and Services team will continue to provide all students with recording services and technology and audio or video files, as needed.

When you study audio recording at CIM, you’ll learn directly from practicing professionals about everything from recording and editing techniques to network communications and basic business practices. Also, by following the same core curriculum as our performance majors, you cultivate aural acuity and musical knowledge that sets you apart in the field. You’ll practice your professional skills through internships at commercial studios, and you’ll regularly record the recitals and ensembles of your fellow students with CIM’s Recording Arts & Services department. Plus, you’ll leave the program with a sought-after certification in Pro Tools.

Audio Recording Department Highlights

Audio Recording Double Major

An increasing number of professional musicians find that their careers deeply involve electronic media. So if you’re an undergraduate student majoring in performance, composition or eurhythmics, you may also add studies leading to a double major in audio recording. This double-major structure normally requires five years of study, allowing you to complete extensive work in audio courses without weakening your other program’s curriculum.
