Our Founders

We created Nimbus because we wanted the next generation of music, media, and content creators to carry on the same tradition of excellence we have worked so hard to build.

That requires a focus not only on the technical skills, but more importantly on the character needed to succeed.

At Nimbus School of Recording & Media, we intentionally keep our classes sizes small, hire only the best industry professionals as your instructors, and provide our students with 24/7 access to the school and studios.

We give you practical assignments that get you working in real-world scenarios whether you are in training in business, audio engineering, music or video production, all so that you can learn hands-on as we prepare you for your future.

We are excited to share our knowledge with you, to push you to become your best, and to help you find an amazing career in the music and media industries.
