Nimbus Advantage

Nimbus is committed to giving you the best experience possible.

Hands On Learning with Small Class Size

We build our lessons around a career focused, hands-on approach to education. Along with small class sizes for quality training, you will learn by doing the work, not reading about it in a textbook.

Mentorship by Industry Professionals

Nimbus students will receive elite mentorship from top industry experts as instructors, including JUNO Award winners & nominees, and gold & platinum record recipients with exclusive guest lectures from music professionals.

24x7 Studios

Nimbus studios are open 24/7 for our students, offering all the time you need to gain confidence and experience with the skills and concepts you are learning. Regardless of which program you take at Nimbus, you will head out into the world with countless hours of practical industry experience.

World Class Gear

At Nimbus, you will get your hands on the highest-quality industry standard gear and the latest digital technology. When you leave Nimbus you will know every button and knob and will be able to work in any studio in the world.

Personal Development

As Nimbus co-founder Bob Ezrin says, "Who you are is more important than what you know how to do." Nimbus offers specific training in interpersonal skills through our psychology classes designed to offer practical examples from studio and industry life to increase your self awareness, confidence, and relational skills.

Community & Collaboration

At Nimbus, collaborating across disciplines to create professional projects is a fact of life, just like in the real world. Not only will you build community with like-minded individuals, you will have the opportunity to join Nimbus in ongoing projects that contribute to the local community.

Racquel Villagante

Deciding to take Nimbus’ Advanced Music Business Management Program, without a doubt, fast-tracked my growth & development in the music industry. It was here that I found the mentorship, education, skills, and tools that I needed to rise up into the A&R role I have today at SOCAN. My network of artists, bands, and industry, along with my knowledge in the business, grew exponentially while I was at Nimbus. The staff are all Jedi masters of their crafts, and being around them helped me LEVEL UP to my fullest potential. The instructors really put all their time, talent, passion, and energy into teaching you how to be the best in the biz.
