Abbey Road Institute Amsterdam, launched in September 2016, is our school located in the heart of Amsterdam. The school is integrated into the brand new, purpose-built studio facilities of Sonic City Studios, based inside music-makers center Q-Factory. It offers our students bespoke studio spaces, with an integrated classroom to work in. We’re proud to host our school in a place that breathes music and supports all areas of the course. You’ll work with top of the range, industry standard equipment in our professional studios.
Overview of the space
Throughout the course you’ll have access to both our teaching and commercial studios at different stages, depending on the modules you’re working on. Our purpose-built facilities include a 100 m² live recording space, production/recording studio and a combined control room and classroom.
Students have access to the Institute’s studios both as part of the timetabled teaching as well evenings for independently managed recording and production and mixing. Every student has access to a powerful computer workstation available before, during and after class.
You can take your project from the studio and continue recording, editing and mixing on the computer workstation. Abbey Road Institute students can be sure they are learning on the very best industry standard equipment in the classroom and studio.
Practical time is allocated on an individual basis and fully supervised by our qualified staff. Practical sessions can be booked by students on a weekly or monthly basis during the operating hours of the Institute. There is no limit to the amount of practical time a student can book during his/her course, subject only to availability.
