Study at Esom School of Music

Every professional performer understands the value of having a top-notch sound engineer on their team. There is nothing more damaging to a performance than a bad sound mix, no matter what type of music it is or how talented the performer is. Sound engineers in the music industry are in high demand because they know how to mix well and know how to construct and deploy high-quality sound systems.
Private music lessons ensure that the student receives the instructor’s undivided attention for the whole duration of the class session. It is possible to study techniques and concepts in more depth because of the particular attention you receive.
A short course is a mini version of our normal course in a private program that lasts for a shorter period of time (normally 6 weeks). In our short courses, a student gets 2 lessons a week and practice throughout the week.
For students who want to grow in their careers and improve the skills required in the audio business, the Sound Engineering certificate program offers the chance to add a variety of music technology-related courses to their existing knowledge. Applications for computer music making, audio recording and production, and live sound engineering are among the topics covered in the program.
