Why choose Musitechnic Formation?
The Short story
Musitechnic Formation was founded in 1987 in Montreal by Gilles Valiquette, a well-known musician, composer, songwriter and performer. As a visionary, he was convinced that technology (especially the computer) would become the centerpiece of audio production and the music industry. This led him to create the first diploma recognized by the Ministry of Education and Higher Education entirely devoted to computer-assisted sound design. This was long before anyone knew what a computer mouse, an Mp3 or even the Internet was. This vision and experience made Musitechnic Formation a pioneer in its field.
Over the years, Musitechnic Formation has remained on the lookout for the needs of the sound industry by being active on the music scenes here and abroad and by collaborating closely with the main players in the field. This has allowed the school to maintain its flagship program, the A.C.S. in Recording and Sound Design, as a reference of excellence in the field and to offer courses such as
Sound Recording | Music Production | Live Sound Mixing (FOH) | Surround Mixing | Sound Design for Films | Audio for Video Games
Our in-depth knowledge of the audio industry allows us to anticipate its needs. That’s why in 2022 we launched the A.C.S. program in Sound Techniques for Video Games and Films.
