You love music. You love audio and production. You’d like to make money, right? That’s what we do at LVC, and we’ve been doing it a long time.

Why LVC?

  • You’ll gain hands-on experience through LVC’s student-run VALE Music Group, which includes the VALE annual national media industries conference, VALE Publishing, VALE Records, and VALE Live.
  • As a freshman audio & music production major, you’ll immediately start your first recording classes, mixing tracks the very first week of school. You’ll have complete access to all our studios as you go through each year, and they’re open all day long for you to practice.
  • We offer an extensive selection of audio classes in areas such as studio recording, mastering, digital media, game audio, live sound, acoustics, sound design, and so on.
  • Our audio & music production majors can easily pursue a minor from another department, and you can choose electives such as video, graphic design, creative writing, or whatever floats your boat. Branch out, try lots of stuff—you never know what may set your course in life.

While working in the studios on campus, I was able to grasp the important elements of signal flow. No studio I’ve ever been to has been identical to the last, but the basic concepts never change, and are instrumental when troubleshooting or learning a new system.
