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.
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.
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.
Our son has been at Nimbus since August 2016. Everything has been an amazing experience for him. From his initial interview (for which I was present) until now....a year later. Every time we talk or text he is just loving this school. So much so that our son who graduates this year from high school has an interview with Nimbus in the near future. As out of province parents, we couldn't have had a better experience. Knowing that our son has made some amazing friends and loves his teachers (who have tons of experience) has made his transition/experience for us all exceptionally wonderful.
