AIMM Music Production School Now Offering Two Types of Programs for Aspiring Producers
Atlanta Institute of Music and Media is an educational facility that is 100% committed to doing everything they can to help their graduates succeed professionally in the music business. There is no better example of that than the fact that their Music Production School is now offering two types of programs for aspiring producers. This includes AIMM’s Music Production and Audio for Media Associate Degree and Certificate in Music Production. These programs offer students the best insider tips and techniques when it comes to tracking, mixing, and mastering music.
Nite Driscoll, the President of Atlanta Institute of Music and Media, says, “Anyone who has ever been around the music industry realizes how hard it is to break into it professionally. That’s why we have worked so hard to design curriculums in our Music Production School that are widely recognized for being comprehensive, fully immersive, and provides lots of actual hands-on learning. These are the types of programs that will definitely give our students a leg up on the competition when they go out into the world seeking professional employment in the music industry.”
According to Driscoll, AIMM welcomes anyone that has a passion for music production and would like to make that field a career. He says that those that decide to learn with them will participate in their uniquely effective approach to vocational training for musicians, production, and engineering students. The learning environment in their well-rounded curriculums consists of general classroom instruction, one-on-one instruction, audio learning, DVD & video labs, computer labs, and live clinics. AIMM’s president says students will also have opportunities at times to help with the productions that the institute puts on to show their students progress in their respective music curriculums.
The President of AIMM mentioned that they are also proud to be a music learning facility that can be flexible when they need to be. This is something that has proven to be very beneficial for their students during the current virus crisis. Students who are enrolled with them now have the option to participate in online classes only, attend classes in-person, or work towards their degree or certificate using a combination of classroom and online learning. This music school is widely popular due to its industry-leading instructors and their exclusive music studios that feature state-of-the-art music production equipment.
Driscoll stated that for those students who are skeptical that a degree or certificate from the Atlanta Institute of Music and Media can get them where they want to be professionally in the music business, have to look no further than successful AIMM Music Production alumni Kesha Lee. In addition to earning a Grammy for her work on ‘This Is America’ with Childish Gambino and KEYZBABY, she also produced the current #1 song in America, ‘WAP’.
The institute president brought up the fact that their music production programs are not the only highly recognized curriculums that the school puts on. They also offer a Music and Technology Associate Degree: Concentration in Guitar, Bass, Drums, Keyboard, or Voice; Online Certificate in Music and Technology: Guitar or Bass Concentration; and a Performance Certificate: Concentration in Guitar, Bass, Drums, Keyboard, or Voice. Driscoll stated that graduates from all of these different curriculums have gone on to have a wide variety of success in the music industry.
Driscoll went on to say that those who are interested in learning more about the Atlanta Institute of Music and Media’s Music Production courses can do so very easily. All they have to do is visit the page on their website which describes in more detail how to get a music production degree. If this piques someone’s interest in the school, AIMM’s president says the next step is to fill out the form that’s found on the bottom of that same webpage to get the process started. He says that their website also has other good information on it too. This includes such things as their admission requirements, the different types of financial aid that they offer, and how to schedule a tour to take a first-hand look at their facilities.

How to Increase Your Vocal Range
Every singer dreams of having the most expansive vocal range possible. Sure, you may be in your car with the music blasting as you belt out those high notes, but in your mind you're on stage in front of tens of thousands of adoring fans.
Likewise, though it may not be as popular, there are tons of vocalists looking to hit lower notes with full clarity and warmth, as well.
The question is, can we increase our vocal range? And if it is possible, how do we accomplish this?
Today, we will be guided by Atlanta Institute of Music and Media vocal instructor, Rick Mallory, on tips and suggestions that help singers increase their vocal range and comfortably hit the notes they desire.
Duluth, Georgia based music school Atlanta Institute of Music and Media (AIMM) is excited and honored to announce that they have been gifted a Baldwin Baby Grand Piano. AIMM offers a number of different majors in music and media, including but not limited to Music Technology, Music Performance, Recording Arts Technician and more.
Nite Driscoll, President of the Atlanta Institute of Music and Media says, “As everyone who is well-versed in pianos will tell you, Baldwin pianos are easily among the best of this kind of instrument. Baldwin is more than just pianos — it’s about peerless quality and the absolute best-sounding and best-playing pianos anywhere. As such, we are very excited and filled with gratitude to have received this very generous gift from our former music instructor, Victoria Kubacki, and her daughter, Christine Atherton of Arlington, Virginia. We would also like to extend our thanks to Tom Wade of Caring Transitions of Louden, Virginia for helping us facilitate this donation.”
Driscoll continues, “In addition to being a fantastic addition to our ranks, AIMM's new Baldwin Baby Grand Piano is also an enticing proposition for the students currently in AIMM's Keyboard Degree program. While electronic keyboards are quite nice and convenient, playing a grand piano is something else entirely. Thanks to this incredibly kind donation from Victoria Kubacki and Christine Atherton, our students now get to experience the magnificent feeling of playing and handling an instrument that is as much of a piece of art as the music produced from it will be.”
AIMM is proud to say that, across all their courses, they provide a fast-paced learning environment outfitted with state-of-the-art production, audio and video equipment. The Institute’s students are given a proper start to their music career, as studying at AIMM offers a host of benefits in addition to quality education. Students will have the opportunity to meet and connect with industry icons and surround themselves with like-minded peers. The Institute boasts that their campus is ripe with potential, collaboration opportunities and instructors who have conquered the music industry and are willing to help every single student find their own footing.
The quality of education provided by the Atlanta Institute of Music and Media — along with the suite of associated services they provide — has earned the school a lot of praise from their students. In a recent Facebook review, R. N. Hubbard writes, “Went here back in 2009, and I have nothing but great things to say. It gave me the tools and understanding to build my career in music. Granted, I do more live audio than studio nowadays, but I’ve been able to teach myself from the fundamentals they taught me at AIMM! Look forward to coming back to visit in the near future to see all the great instructors!”
Meanwhile, in a highly-rated review on the college and school ranking website Niche, a freshman at AIMM writes, “About a year ago, I started doing some soul-searching wondering what I want to do with my life. I was 23 at the time: no kids, single apartment, own car, yet I wasn’t happy, working a job I disliked and feeling I was just living to pay bills. I knew ever since I was 11 years ago I love writing poetry, rhymes and rap. So, I figured I should do something in music. I started looking at the different fields I can do and came across audio engineering and audio post production. I thought those were the dream career jobs I have been looking for. So then I started searching for colleges near me that have the program but none were to my liking. Then I came across the Atlantic Institute of Music and Media, where I found my match! Down to the degree that they offer internships and jobs in overall experience and location of the school, this is my #1 choice, and I’m excited to see what the future holds.”

Duluth, Georgia based Atlanta Institute of Music and Media (AIMM) is pleased to announce that they are now offering a Guitar Performance Certificate. The Atlanta Institute of Music and Media offers majors in music and media, including but not limited to Music Technology, Music Performance and Recording Arts Technician.
The new Performance Certificate for Guitarists will allow guitarists to fully master the instrument and the art of performing, and it can be completed in as quickly as 12 months. The program is designed such that, should students who complete the Performance Certificate for Guitarists decide they want to continue their education and learn about the music production side, their Guitar Performance Certificate courses can be seamlessly transitioned over to the Music and Technology Associate Degree: Guitar Concentration Program.
AIMM President Nite Driscoll, “At the Atlanta Institute of Music and Media, we have always prided ourselves in providing music and media education across the board, but we have always felt that our guitar programs were lacking something. The brand new Performance Certificate for Guitarists is intended to fill that gap and serve the needs of students who seek to master the guitar. If you are an intermediate guitarist and want to get certified, we can proudly state that Atlanta Institute of Music and Media is the place you are looking for.”
According to the Atlanta Institute of Music and Media, the certificate will provide students with the education to improve their guitar performance skills and show them the tools they need to gain employment in the field. The program is meant to fit students' necessities and give them 100% peace of mind, so the Guitar Certificate Program (much like all of AIMM's programs) can be taken online, on-campus or in a hybrid model. Furthermore, the program can be completed in 12 months (4 quarters) of ¾ time enrollment.
Driscoll says, “With our fast-paced learning environment, outfitted with state-of-the-art production, audio and video equipment, our students will feel their music career starting from the very beginning. But that’s not all. The opportunities are practically endless when you study with us. At AIMM, you won’t just be mastering the guitar — you’ll also be able to meet life-long industry connections and surrounding yourself with like-minded guitarists. AIMM's campus is ripe with potential, collaborative opportunities and instructors who have conquered the music industry and are willing to help you find your own footing.”
The Atlanta Institute of Music and Media says that, with their help, students will grow confident and intelligent musicians, producers or live sound engineers, which in turn will make them more than capable of handling more demanding and better-paying jobs in a competitive market.
Studying at AIMM also gives students a number of other important benefits, such as a work-study program (that affords those with financial difficulties the opportunity to get a part-time position within AIMM’s campus departments) and a vast musical curriculum experience (where students can experience musical flavors from all different genres, including, jazz, classical, rock, folk, blues and R&B). More importantly, students will also get a job placement upon graduation. Driscoll explains that students work with a Placement Specialist to produce a resume during the final quarter of attendance, following which they may begin exploring in-field employment opportunities.
The Atlanta Institute of Music and Media is proud to state that their students have gone on to work with great musical artists and companies. Artists who have worked with AIMM’s graduates include Snoop Dogg, Ludacris, Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Childish Gambino, Mary J. Blige, Ciara and more. Further, AIMM’s graduates have also worked with companies like Honeywell, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Comcast, Aflac and so on.
