Academic Experience: My major is Business Entertainment and my minor is Audio Engineering. Before i came to this school I didnt know anything. Now that I am just about done I am more than confident in Engineering as well as the business side of it.

Academic Experience: If you attend school everyday and do the homework you should have no problem passing. If you want to be successful then read all the PDF files given by the instructors and make sure you spend extra time at your craft outside of school. The Professors are very intelligent and are willing to help students in every way possible.

Academic Flexibility: The classes have a different schedule each month which made it kind of difficult, but with my transfer credits and financial aid I was able to be fully committed to any schedule.

Student Body: It is super diverse here. All ethnicities, and everyone fits in. There are no clicks, everyone is friends with everyone. We network together and form study groups...etc.

Campus Resources: Our computer labs are great. Always available, and the computers are always re-updated so that the computer always runs at a fast pace. We really don't even need those labs though because we are given a laptop for a discounted price and don't have to pay for it until after we graduate.

Campus Resources: Here at LARS, everyone is pretty much family. We all have to work together. The facilities are amazing. At our school we are taught to work with every type of recording console and up to date and old programs for recording.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: The resources here are great. The library just got another remodel. The computers we use and were given are top of the line.

College Junior

Online Courses: Online courses are much easier from what I can tell. The classroom usually can become distarcting while the online course, you are able to work in peace and on your own.

Academic Experience: Academic Experience – When attending the Los Angeles Recording School, every student acquires a monumental amount of knowledge, if they apply themselves. Becoming an audio engineering is not easy. If you want it to be your profession, you have to work for it. LARS has made it possible for me to gain all the skills that I need to become proficient in the music industry. The labs are always enjoyable and hands on. I personally have a better learning experience when objects are tangible. If I can touch and feel exactly what we are talking about, it makes it so much easier; LARS excels in this aspect. As I mentioned before, becoming an audio engineer is not an easy task. To make sure we know the history behind what we are learning about, students are required to have lecture classes. I have never experience classes like these. They are extremely informative and they compress so much information in just one month but they make it understandable. The facilities at LARS are very nice and definitely aesthetically pleasing. I've been wowed a number of times by seeing different types of mixing consoles. All of the gear in each room is top of the line professional grade audio equipment, and the students can use every last bit of it. Prior to graduating from the Los Angeles Recording School, they keep you updated with current internship and job openings. Since LARS is one of the more prestigious recording schools in the Los Angeles/Hollywood area, a lot of people, such as studio managers, want LARS graduates to work for them. I am really glad that I decided to join this recording school.

Tuition & Financial Aid: My experience at the Los Angeles Recording School has been a phenomenal one. Just about every instructor you have is an accomplished engineer and has worked with many of the industries most talented artists. The lab classes allow you to be hands on with a lot of professional studio equipment which a lot of students do not have the chance to do. Just like the labs, the lectures are extremely informative. They go into greater depth on the subject matter which you are currently studying. The tuition at LARS can be somewhat pricy but every cent is worth it. You acquire so much knowledge when you attend this school. Plus, they are very attentive to your needs when it comes to financial aid. Every student will get some kind of grant. Deciding to come to LARS was the best decision I have ever made.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I spend nearly 3/5th of my day at school, and I love. The atmosphere, the people, and the way the school treats their students is amazing. My favorite experience has to be the first time I walked through the glass doors, it feels like I never came back out.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Information Overload – I chose the school because I had friends who attended the school and gave me good insight on how the school operates and what I could expect if I were to attend. After fives months of attendance, the school has yet to sink below expectations. I am learning something new everyday virtual to my career path. Attending the school as also help change my work ethic around, with me now earning a 3.7 GPA compared to a 2.13 in high school with a desire to continue going to school after. The only downside is the constant schedule change each month, it makes it tough to keep appointments.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Hands on – This school is very hands on. There are computers and consoles for everyone so we are always working physically working, not watching. By the time you graduate you have already substantial hours on industry equipment.

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: Higher Learning – After I finish my 9 month program I am please that LARS is working on extended the career program so that I can obtain my associate degree and not just a certificate in Audio Engineering. I would love to attend the film school next.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Living My Dream – I am so happy to be able to attend a school where I can follow my dreams. Traveling 1800 miles away from home to learn the skills I need to be successful in my career. I love learning all the different tools to be able to record music.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: My First Year in College Experience – The education I'm getting is worth the money. I did recieve finacial aid, help but did not pay for my full living out of town expenses. I have learned a lot from LARS. I would like to futher my career with LAFS. I worry about graduating with a lot of bills.
