Abbey Road studios launch their educational Institute

April 8, 2015

The famous Abbey Road studios- property of Universal Music – launch their educational Institute for September 2015 intake. It’s in this legendary location that has been recorded the well known eponymous Beatles’ album.  This institute has a vocation for being global: a 12 month audio engineering and music production training is offered in the London studios but also in Berlin, Melbourne, Frankfurt, Munich and soon in Paris.

In September 2015, Abbey Road studios launch their own educational Institute aimed at students aged 18 and over. At end of the year course they will be awarded an advanced diploma in music production and sound engineering.
The curriculum has been developed by audio educational specialists together with Abbey Road studios engineers.  Music industry experts such as producers and music label professionals teach the students and Abbey Road studios engineers give lectures.
Audio engineer Luca Barassi, who also has a 12 year experience in audio education, heads up the London Abbey Road Institute. “Synonymous with excellence in recorded music for more than 80 years, Abbey Road’s continued success is largely due to its staff and their knowledge. Now we will be able to share some of this expertise in a course which will provide first-class vocational training for people interested in forging a career in the music industry.”

Save the date: September 12, 2015 is the Paris educational Institute open day before its opening on October 19, 2015. In 2016, two more institutes will open in Munich and Sidney.

Alice Cathelineau, Artistic director of the company “Opéra sur le toit”

April 15, 2015

“Opera at a priority-education secondary school is a successful socialisation experience.” From September 2014 through April 2015, the Opéra sur le Toit company conducted an educational outreach course centred around opera for a second form (7th grade) class at the François Villon lower secondary school, located in a designated “urban policy” neighbourhood in Paris. The students were invited to create their own musical production* through participation in music and theatre workshops. The learning experience was then continued through outings, concerts and shows. Stéphanie d’Oustrac and Magali Léger, internationally renowned opera singers, served as patronesses for this experience.

March 9, 2015

“A wave of feminism is sweeping through the media today. Every day, countless articles highlight gender inequality and encourage women to break through the ‘glass ceiling’ (...) It is now up to the media to make smart choices that reflect the society they serve.”
