We sat down to talk with some of our recent Engineering & Production Course students. Here's what they had to say:
Want to become a Pro Recording Engineer or Producer?
Want professional results from your project studio?
Want full control over the outcome of your recording sessions at major studios?
Read on to find out more...
Learn everything you need from our industry experts to become a successful recording engineer at a fraction of the cost and time elsewhere!
Many students arrive here because they do not want the added time and cost of unnecessary classes required in a university system.
At Bristol Studios, you will study under experienced engineers who are also trained educators. Statistically, our students excel because an accelerated and personalized course like ours coupled with an engineering internship, also available at Bristol Studios, rockets them up to the professional standards needed to get hired in the industry.
With over 25 years of industry experience, Bristol Studios has worked with some of most influential producers and artists in the business. Clients include: Jada (Universal/Motown), Dropkick Murphys (Warner), Yo Yo Ma (Sony), Meatloaf (Virgin), New Kids On The Block (Universal/Interscope), Rico Love (Usher, TLC, Natasha Bedingfield), Madd Scientist (Beyonce, Leona Lewis), Red One (NKOTB, Kat Deluna, Micheal Jackson), The Insomniax (JoJo, Bobby Valentino, Boyz II Men, B5), Jeff Corwin, David "Big Papi" Ortiz, and more.
Learn from working professionals who bring their real-world experience to the classroom. Senior Producer, Chris Billias, has spent the last 15 years creating literally thousands of music productions for Bristol's diverse clientele involving him in all aspects of the music and audio world. He has custom designed Bristol's Audio Engineering Program to create classes that bring the latest knowledge and technology to our students. By using our insight and experience in the industry, Bristol Courses prepare our students for a successful career in the music business. In keeping our classroom size small, our students get the opportunity to work in an actual studio setting where both the theory and practice of audio engineering is stressed. Students receive a true "hands on" education that will give them the skills they need to succeed in this industry.
Our curriculum includes a number of different courses, but there are five main classes that make up the foundation of our program: Engineering 1, Engineering 2, ProTools 1, Reason, and Production 1.

Engineering I Course was very informative and engaging. Everything was
explained in a very clear manner, usually accompanied by demonstration.
My instructor was excellent. If anything was unclear he would make sure
everyone understood. The subject matter was what I expected to cover,
but the course was far more thorough than I would have imagined. I was
very satisfied with the course and instructor." -J.H.
"I had worked
before but always had difficulty dealing with aux sends and bussing.
MIDI was also difficult for me to do. All of these problems were
addressed in class and I feel very confident in my ability to do these
things now. My instructor was extremely helpful, and forthcoming about
the functionality and pros & cons of the software. The hands on
approach allowed me to spend a great deal of time with the program."
"Having no experience
Reason, I was very pleased with this course. My instructor covered all
the instruments and effects thoroughly, and gave us plenty of time to
experiment. The hands-on approach was perfect and allowed me to work
out concepts i was confused about. My instructor was always helpful and
attentive, answering questions, and clarifying anything i was
struggling with." -O.K.
fun/educational to do
a group song, learn to work with others, and pick up on their little
habits you might not learn otherwise. Reason is so huge and has so many
possibilities that it’s impossible to get to them all, but even with my
familiarity with Reason a lot of things clicked into place for me."
"The staff at Bristol has given me that dream and opportunity to succeed in the music business. With their training I have boosted my ability as a musician and now as an engineer and producer." -BG
"The Bristol Engineering Course 1 that I attended on a weekly basis was amazing. When I first started, I didn't believe I could learn so many things in just a 10 week period. My instructor was very clear and precise about every single subject we covered. I would recommend this course to anyone that loves music and wants to know what goes behind it." -A.B.
COURSE SCHEDULE: There are three scheduling options for the classes. We have the classes start as often as possible, basically once 4 people are registered for a class, we get it scheduled and started. Since the class sizes are small (a limit of 6 people) we're able to be quite flexible with the scheduling, as far as which days and what times.
Standard schedule: These classes are once a week for 2 hours, usually in the evening (6-8 or 7-9), but have had them in the morning before when it was appropriate for the class. Each course is 10 weeks long, so to get through all 5 courses takes about a year.
Accelerated program: This gets you through the courses quickly. They meet 4 days a week for 5 hours/day. You get through a course/week and finish all 5 courses in 5 weeks. It's intensive, but you come out the other end already engineering, producing and ready to get on an internship.
Weekend accelerated: This program meets every Saturday and Sunday for 5 hours/day, you get through a course in 2 weekends, or about 10 weeks for all 5 courses.
REGISTRATION: To Register, a non-refundable 50% deposit is required. Balance is due one week before the course start date. Contact Jason at 617-247-8689 for more details.
NEW: FINANCIAL AID NOW AVAILABLE. 6 months interest free financing available through paypal and other packages also available. Call Jason today at 617-247-8689 to see if you qualify!
Here are some samples recorded, mixed and completely done by students before they even finished the courses!
INTERNSHIPS: Many course graduates are offered an internship here at Bristol, where they experience the real life demands of a busy functioning studio. We have almost 100% placement for graduates from our internship program. Recent students are currently working at studios around the country; everywhere from Harmonix (the company who created Guitar Hero/RockBand) and house sound at the Opera House here in Boston to FOX Network Studios/ Danny Elfman in L.A, Three Pear Studios in Chicago, All Star Studios in Atlanta to full time engineering here at Bristol Recording Studios.
