The Blackbird Academy has helped me grow tremendously as an Audio Engineer. If you're considering enrolling at this school, it could be the best decision you'll ever make - It definitely was mine. Industry professionals are constantly popping in-and-out, utilizing and appreciating everything that Blackbird has to offer. The entire studio (from microphones to outboard gear to all of the studio rooms) is available for the academy. This school is 'the real-world experience'. The Academy also provides tremendous support for their soon-to-be graduates and helps them land internship/work opportunities all over the globe! The Blackbird Academy is the place to be!

"I did both programs and graduated March, 2017. I specifically chose The Blackbird Academy because I knew that it was going to provide the best quality education in terms of audio, and it paid off. I was hired by Clair Global after I finished the Live Sound Program, which led me to becoming the front of house engineer for Carly Pearce, who is on tour with Luke Bryan. It has been such an amazing experience and I've learned so much this year."

"I graduated from the Blackbird Academy in June of 2015. Thanks to the education and connections I had received in this program, I began touring even prior to graduating. Since then, I have mixed for Aubrie Sellers, Sturgill Simpson, Raelynn, and am currently mixing FOH for Kane Brown. By using what I learned in lectures and live band rehearsals at the Blackbird Academy, I was able to go out and start working immediately, no matter what equipment I was given. I have been hired by and worked with other Blackbird graduates in the past two years and we are developing an incredible network of engineers and audio professionals across the nation. I would highly recommend anyone that wants to have a great career in audio to come be part of the Blackbird family!"

"After graduating from The Blackbird Academy, I was able to immediately translate what I learned into the work I do with artists every day. I've been privileged enough to have surpassed 1 billion streams to my credits, with multiple Billboard #1's, and Platinum and Gold records. The education you receive prepares you for every situation that gets thrown at you in the "real-world," and the hands-on nature of it allows you to learn in studios from mentors who make serious records every day. My time at Blackbird was the perfect foundation for me to solidify my skills so I can deliver the best results for the artists I work with. Attending The Blackbird Academy is something I would recommend to anyone who wants to make audio their career."
