2022 F.I.R.S.T. Institute Reviews

We’re back once again, taking a moment to appreciate those who appreciated us!

As we look into the 2022 F.I.R.S.T. Institute reviews, we notice some common themes that show what our students really enjoy about F.I.R.S.T. Institute.

So let’s dive straight into it, starting with a theme that we’ve all learned a lot about over the past few years – flexibility.


2022 F.I.R.S.T. Institute Reviews!

If there’s anything 2021 and 2022 taught us, it’s that professional education needs to be able to adapt to the times. That includes providing many ways to ingest the information provided and being flexible around the timing of our students’ classes. We are thankful for our 2022 F.I.R.S.T. Institute Reviews and are excited to share a few of them with you! 

Tab Jones hits the nail on the head, saying:


Right on, this is exactly what we strive for at F.I.R.S.T. The entire reason we are both an ‘in-person’ and ‘online’ multi media school is to increase our geographical and temporal reach. In other words, we strive to ensure that morning and evening classes are available to accommodate students’ schedules.

One of the keys to being able to deliver on these promises is to keep class sizes small. Overload a class, and the teachers and staff are spread too thin to provide the kind of personal attention that is required to make sure our busy students are being properly prepared in their fields. In Tatiana Jones’s 2022 F.I.R.S.T. Institute Reviews, a Recording Arts and Show Production student, is grateful for this.

Whether attending a class on campus or participating online, it’s absolutely critical that our dedicated instructors have the ability to provide personalized support and guidance to each and every one of their students. This level of individualized attention and care is simply impossible to achieve in the traditional auditorium setting that has unfortunately become the norm at many universities. By creating an environment that fosters one-on-one interactions and encourages open communication, we can ensure that students receive the tailored support they need to thrive and succeed in their academic journey.


Focus on Your Creativity

If you want to be able to express yourself, an in-person and online digital school should have avenues that allow you to do that in a career-positive way.

And F.I.R.S.T. absolutely checks that box, according to Mackayla Smith in her 2022 F.I.R.S.T. Institute Reviews.


Not only do our students have the opportunity to express themselves creatively, but they’re going to have the chance to interact with other students from radically different backgrounds with brand new styles to bring to the table. The fusion between traditional and modern techniques, whether you’re talking about film, photography, graphic design, or audio engineering, can produce some stunning results.

In Jonathon Gonzalez 2022 F.I.R.S.T. Institute reviews, he appreciated how F.I.R.S.T. not only allowed creative expression but understood how our role must change to reflect the struggles we see in the world around us:


We couldn’t agree more. Any time we see barriers to creativity, either in the classroom or professionally, we make moves that will help our students avoid the immediate pitfalls. Then, we position them to take advantage of our Career Services department so that they can continue to express themselves in environments that will provide the degree of artistic freedom that they need to thrive.

Johnathan makes a good point about the lack of general education classes as well. The industries we cover are trades as well as artistic outlets, and we treat them as such. We don’t care whether or not you can do trigonometry unless you specifically need that skill in your field. You don’t need to know how to write a sonnet if your main focus is taking graphic design courses!


Instructors Who are Active in the Industry

Of all the benefits F.I.R.S.T. offers to its students, we are most proud of the impressive faculty that students have access to. These are not career teachers… rather, they’re industry pros with real experience in the fields our students train for. This allows them to provide insights that go far beyond what can be gleaned from a textbook. As Einstein said, “The only source of knowledge is experience. You need experience to gain wisdom.”

As Gamas Revenge points out in another 2022 F.I.R.S.T. Institute Reviews, this is a school like no other:


Stop, we’re blushing!

Fostering a community in which students feel free to interact with instructors and one another helps them maximize the connections they make while at school. Success may not be all about who you know, but being part of a large network of creative professionals certainly never hurts anyone.

Multimedia has penetrated every market around the globe, and in order to keep up with demand, students need to have exposure to a broad array of backgrounds, talents, and tastes. That’s how you get the best fit between a newly trained professional and a prospective employer.

Getting to Work Faster

Remember that Hollywood and New York no longer have strangleholds on the creative market. You could easily find yourself collaborating with talent across multiple continents, even on your very first professional project.

Here’s what Kelli Knight has to say about career opportunities and more in her 2022 F.I.R.S.T. Institute Reviews:


A broad and diverse range of educational backgrounds proves to be advantageous in another aspect that Kelli mentioned: interdisciplinary learning. At our institution, we often encounter students who have specialized training in specific fields but aspire to apply their knowledge and skills across various mediums and disciplines.

This phenomenon extends beyond traditional transitions, such as moving from theater to film. In today’s digital landscape, with the rise of live streaming and the increasing popularity of augmented and virtual reality, the boundaries between disciplines are rapidly dissolving. For instance, performances and concerts are no longer solely focused on captivating live audiences; they must also consider camera angles and audio experiences for virtual attendees.

Moreover, audio mixing has become a multidimensional consideration, spanning from digital downloads to integration into broadcast formats, and even encompassing revived formats like vinyl. The possibilities for individuals who embrace interdisciplinary learning are limitless. Fortunately, F.I.R.S.T. is one of the leading art schools that recognizes the importance of a comprehensive approach, enabling students to undergo intensive cross-training at a professional level.

By embracing interdisciplinary learning, students can unlock a whole new realm of opportunities, fostering creativity and versatility in their chosen fields.
