SAE (School of Audio Engineering)
Probably the "best of the best" when it comes to a full on recording & engineering degree, SAE could be called the global university for music production and engineering with campuses in 24 different countries, including seven in the U.S. and four in the U.K. Established in 1976, SAE has graduated more students in the recording business then anyone else in the world. Not your "run of the mill" joint by any means, SAE is for the serious player that is "all in" for Music Production & Engineering. A bit more needed in the budget, but the "get what you pay for" motto is fact with SAE.
Cost: $20,000 or more for 12-month programs; $2,000 for 3-month courses
