Programs at Nimbus
Matching your creativity and passion with in depth technical skills and knowledge sets you up for success in this fast-paced entertainment industry. What are you passionate about?
Audio engineering and production are at the heart of Nimbus. After establishing a solid foundation with our Intro to Audio Engineering and Intro Audio Production courses, you can specialize in Post & Game Audio, Live Sound, Studio-based production, In-The-Box Electronic production, or advanced engineering.
Our studios are in operation 24/7 for classes, assignments and student-bookable studio sessions.
Whether you want to create music videos, commercials, short films or film live webcasts, we’ll give you the skills and confidence you need to step into any production role and create professional video content for any medium.
We will teach you well-established video production techniques and new, up-to-the-minute skills necessary to put yourself at the forefront of the ever-evolving media landscape.
Music Industry & Business
Nimbus Advanced Music Industry students gain up-to-the-minute skills in the music industry as it is today. Students of the Advanced Music Industry program will promote albums and gain real, practical experience, including how to successfully run and manage a modern media business.
As part of our commitment to hands on learning, our business students run their own record label, Business Class Records, and services company, Nimbus Media.
Becoming a commercially viable artist takes more than talent, drive and commitment. So, we talked to top industry professionals to find out what they look for in artists they would want to work with – then we designed a course to do exactly that.
Covering songwriting, identity, branding, photoshoots, marketing, coaching, videos and the production of a single, this intensive course ends with an industry showcase.
This is not your normal school. From our small class sizes, industry-active instructors, gear and studios, to our hands-on approach, we've created an environment where you can thrive.
Faculty & Mentorship
Nimbus faculty includes an impressive list of engineers, producers, sound designers, and business leaders (including Juno winners & nominees, and gold & platinum record recipients). You will have the chance to learn from the best in the industry.
All of our instructors are current in the industry, actively working in projects and bringing that current knowledge back to the classroom.

Gear & Studios
At Nimbus, you will get your hands on the highest-quality industry standard gear and the latest digital technology - in and out of the box.
Nimbus is open 24/7. When our classroom studios are not in use for classes, students can book them for sessions to work on their assignments and their own projects. We provide over 3,500 studio sessions each year, representing almost 30,000 hours of recording time.

Hands On Experiences
We build our lessons around a career focused, hands-on approach to education. With small class sizes, you learn by doing the work, not reading about it in a textbook. Audio & Video students train in real studios with top of the line gear, the same gear used in professional studios around the world. Business students work with real artists, plan and run real events, and work for our student-run record label.
Being & Community
We believe that who you are as person is more important than what you know how to do. That's why, in addition to providing training on skills and technical knowledge, Nimbus also focuses on opportunities for personal development.
All of our students have classes with our Registered Clinical Counsellor, learning interpersonal skills, group dynamics and conflict resolution.
Nimbus is also actively involved in the community. By supporting hundreds of community projects each year, we provide students with the opportunity to interact and apply these soft-skills in real life situations, as well as to strengthen their experience for their future career.
