BECOME AN AUDIO PROFESSIONAL

THE SCHOOL,

MUSITECHNIC

Training the next generation of audio pros since 1987

Musitechnic was founded in 1987 by Gilles Valiquette, a well-known musician, composer, songwriter and singer in Montreal. He was confident that technology would become the central part of the music production and industry to the point of creating the first Quebec Ministry recognized diploma entirely dedicated to computer-assisted sound design. That was way before everybody knew what a computer mouse, an MP3 or the internet was. That pioneer vision and experience define Musitechnic’s DNA.

Diploma : A.C.S. RECORDING AND SOUND DESIGN

The Attestation of Collegial Studies is a diploma recognized by the Quebec Ministry of Education.
Once you have graduated you can apply for an Audio Technician Certificate recognized in the United States as well as the French equivalency. This service is not offered by Musitechnic and isn’t included in the fees.
