- Why Nimbus?
elcome to Nimbus! We are an audio engineering and music production school in Vancouver. We have quickly become known as one of the best recording schools in the world due to our focus on exceptional quality hands-on recording and audio engineering training and music entrepreneurship training. Inspired by the experience of our world-class founders, Bob Ezrin & GGGarth Richardson, everything we teach is based on real world scenarios and taught on industry standard equipment.
Nimbus is the elite accredited music production school offering courses that prepare students to enter the dynamic audio engineering and recording industry. We offer diploma programs in music recording and production techniques, urban music production, music business, live sound, and post-production and game audio. We also offer two 8 month fast-track certificate programs.
Our mission is simple: to ensure that the immense expertise developed over the last several decades of music production and recording is properly passed on to the new generation. The result? Better music. We believe that exceptional music has the power to inspire change, and ultimately to make the world a better place. At Nimbus, we’re not focused on classrooms and textbooks. This is a community with mentorship at it’s core.
You’ll be mentored by world-class engineers and producers rather than inexperienced teachers, collaborating in the smallest classes in the industry with guaranteed dedicated studio time. Add to that five impressive studios packed with top-of-the-line gear and the very latest ProTools HDX2 systems throughout, and you are in for an unparalleled educational experience. But don’t take our word for it, book a tour and see Vancouver’s best sound and music production school for yourself.
he Nimbus legacy begins in the late 60s with music legend Jack Richardson. A pioneer and mentor, Jack produced over 240 albums, 30 Billboard-charted singles, 20 Billboard-charted albums, 5 gold and 3 platinum albums from the storied Nimbus 9 Studios.
Jack in turn mentored Bob Ezrin and Jack’s son GGGarth, both of whom went on to successful careers as producers. In 2009, Bob and Garth partnered with Kevin Williams to co-found Nimbus School of Recording Arts. Their mandate was to teach the next generation of engineers and producers as they had been taught by Jack, passing along the traditions of excellence in audio engineering and music production pioneered by Jack.
…Nimbus doesn’t feel like a school at all. Nimbus feels more like home. There really is no other place like it. If your dreams are in the music and recording industry, your money will be wasted going elsewhere. Nimbus is the future of music. Fact.
Nimbus is more than just a school. It is a philosophy, an attitude, a way of life… My experience there has made me not only a better engineer, but a better person as well!
Not only did I learn how to engineer and produce, I learned how to utilize my time and energy for something I really care about, and all the while having more fun then I ever imagined possible.
