Recording Engineering Degrees in Emeryville California

Those of you who follow the page, know that I’m big on education. And while that might seem to be a surprise to some who knew me as a kid, it’s always been true, really, it’s just that my insatiable curiosity wasn’t always directed toward what is taught in school.

My guess is, that if you’re hear reading this, you often find yourself in the same boat, so from time to time, I like to cover some of the music and engineering schools out so you’re informed as to what music business education options are available to you.

Today, I wanted to take a quick look at Ex’pression College of Digital Arts in Emeryville, California. Emeryville is home to Pixar Studios and is a stone’s throw from Berkeley and San Francisco. Yeah!

Ex’pression offers Bachelor’s Degrees in a number of disciplines including: Sound Arts, Game Art and Design and Motion Graphic Design.

From the Ex’pression website: “Expression’s Sound Arts Program provides students with the knowledge and skills to help shape the cutting edge of audio design and creation. The focus is hands-on experience needed to land audio and music engineering jobs, and access to digital audio equipment and software. Training in the Sound Arts Program at our school prepares students for the challenges of music recording, audio engineering, audio post-production for film and television, video games, live sound, MIDI production, studio management, and multi-media non-linear editing. Learn to use leading edge music and audio production software, such as Pro Tools.” has partnered with Ex’pression to allow our readers fast and simple access to their free information kit. You can learn more about their Sound Arts, Motion Graphics or Game Art and Design by filling out this super-quick form. Maybe you’ll end up working at Pixar!

Here are a few of Ex’pression’s famous alumni and faculty:
