The undergraduate major in studio production is among the leading programs of its kind in the United States. The faculty and alumni alike are established artists and producers, and many studio production students are professionals before they graduate. The hallmarks of the Studio Production Program include:
The curriculum offers hands-on lessons in each of the state-of-the-art recording facilities housed in the Conservatory of Music, plus a thorough grounding in the business of music. Additionally, studio production students engineer dozens of recitals for their fellow students in the Conservatory, creating a synergy that is virtually exclusive to Purchase College.
Central to the program’s success are internships at companies in the music industry, ranging from Warner Brothers and Sony to Shanachie and Rough Ryders, and at professional recording studios like Acme, Carriage House, and the Loft.
