WE ARE NIMBUS
Nimbus School of Recording & Media is the elite music and media school located in beautiful Vancouver, BC, Canada. Nimbus offers small class sizes, mentorship from industry experts, hands-on training, and 24/7 access to our professional studios. Nimbus was co-founded by renowned music producers Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Alice Cooper, Kiss) and GGGarth Richardson (Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Biffy Clyro). All of our courses are taught by current industry professionals. We offer diploma and certificate programs in audio engineering, music production, electronic music production, video production, post-production & game audio, live sound, and music industry entrepreneurship. Nimbus helps students create their future in music and media.
THE NIMBUS ADVANTAGE:
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. Mentorship & Networking
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. Some students have even received their first professional album credit while in school! Nimbus students also benefit from ongoing networking opportunities with top industry professionals through regular guest lectures. Past guest speakers have visited from: Nettwerk Records, Monstercat, Earthquaker Devices, Roland, Take Aim Media, SOCAN, The Feldman Agency, Universal Music Publishing, and many more. 24/7 Practical Industry Experience
Nimbus is open 24/7 for our students. With 24 hour access to our studios, you will have 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 when you have completed your time here, you will head out into the world with countless hours of practical industry experience. World-Class Gear
To be a world-class engineer, videographer, or producer, you need to work on world-class gear. At Nimbus, you will get your hands on the highest-quality industry standard gear and the latest digital technology. This includes three amazing SSL consoles, Avid S6 and S3 control surfaces, Slate Audio Raven MTX, and the latest Pro Tools HDX Systems. When you leave Nimbus you will be able to walk into any studio and know every button and knob. Collaboration
Be part of the Nimbus ecosystem. Gain valuable interpersonal skills through our psychology classes designed to offer experiential learning with practical examples from studio and industry life to increase your self-awareness, confidence, and relational skills. You will also build your resume through integration with fellow students from other courses and programs. At Nimbus, collaborating across disciplines to create professional projects is a fact of life, just like in the real world. Opportunity
