Abbey Road Institute, the specialist music production school at London’s Abbey Road Studios, has confirmed the opening of their first school in the United States in partnership with multiple Grammy and Latin Grammy winner Julio Reyes Copello at his studio, Miami Art House in Miami, Fla.
Reyes Copello, who has worked with Marc Anthony, Ricky Martin, Jennifer Lopez, and Alejandro Sanz, among others; will act as a mentor to the select group of students joining the program. His team at Miami Art House will also play key roles on a day-to-day basis bringing the reality of studio life directly to the student experience with the school occupying a space within the building alongside the commercial studios.
‘‘My goal is for aspiring producers, engineers and artists to learn by direct experience,” says Copello on a press statement. I aim to guide, educate and inspire future generations of music professionals while staying fully involved and engaged in my work as a music producer for the most important and upcoming artists of the industry.
Abbey Road Institute offers courses for aspiring music producers and engineers in a small and intimate environment. It focuses on high-quality audio education delivered in a hands-on apprenticeship style, which prepares graduates to enter the fast-paced music industry and create their own career trajectory.
Luca Barassi, Abbey Road Institute London CEO commented: “The quality of the education we offer is incredibly important and opening a school with Julio at the helm, with the level of experience and expertise he has within the music industry, will prove invaluable to the school and our students.”
In addition to the music production and sound engineering program, Copello will be launching a bespoke diploma in music performance, which will provide a training ground for up and coming artists who will work closely with those on the music production diploma, providing both groups with a catalyst to speed up and enhance learning in their respective subjects.
The team of bilingual music professionals working with Reyes Copello at Miami Art House will include engineer Maria Elisa Ayerbe, who was recently honored by the Latin Recording Academy recently as one of the “Leading Ladies of Latin Entertainment,” and will look to inspire a new generation of female music production and engineering students.
The school will be enrolling its first round of students for the Diploma in Music Production and Sound Engineering in fall 2020. Applications are now open — to apply click here.
