LIVE YOUR PASSION

BECOME AN AUDIO PROFESSIONAL

THE SCHOOL

Musitechnic was founded in 1987 in Montreal by Gilles Valiquette, a well-known musician, composer, singer and songwriter. Visionary, he was convinced that technology (especially computers) would become the centerpiece of the audio production and music industry, to the point of creating the first diploma recognized by the Ministry of Education and Higher Education entirely dedicated to computer-assisted sound design. This was long before anyone knew what a computer mouse, an mp3 or even the internet was. This groundbreaking vision and experience made Musitechnic a pioneer in its field.
