Individual Classes

If our Recording Arts Program isn't right for you, then you can take one class at a time. Each class is typically one-on-one and can be taken via screenshare from anywhere around the world. All individual classes you take can count as credit towards our FAFSA approved Recording Arts Program. Our online class experience is truly unique. All of the One-On-One attention you would experience here in person at our Austin campus you will experience with our screenshare classes.
