Looking back over the past few years, opening a successful studio, traveling the southeast markets filming, basically doing what I love I realize that it’s all possible because of the tools I acquired while I was a student at F.I.R.S.T. I sincerely thank you guys for helping me find my passion and pointing me in the direction to achieve my goals!!!

I graduated here 2 and a half years ago. Best Choice of my life. Right now I own a Successful Business Mixing and Mastering Music World Wide! I have worked with Artist from over 20 countries, and 4 continents. Without this school I wouldn’t have had the Knowledge to do the work I do today! If you have the drive to push threw the hard times. I would defiantly recommend you come here!

I moved from North Carolina to Florida to pursue my passion and further my career in music production and audio engineering. I visited many schools in many different states and I honestly don’t know if F.I.R.S.T chose me or if I chose F.I.R.S.T. Since graduating, I am doing things I never thought I would do, making lifelong connections and friends. If that wasn’t enough, I recently became a part of the team as a Marketing Assistant and Lab Instructor here at F.I.R.S.T. I am living proof that anything is possible if you challenge yourself and take chances. I sincerely and highly recommend F.I.R.S.T Institute!
