Dubspot has announced it continues to grow in 2012 with cutting-edge classrooms and new courses.
Over the past few years, Dubspot has grown from a single classroom in New York City’s West Village to a global institute, attracting students from all around the world. This rapid growth has led us to expand our course offering from Dubspot Online and build a whole new floor in our New York facility with four state of the art classrooms.
Each room is acoustically treated and equipped with the latest music technology for music production, sound design, mixing, software – based mastering and electronic music performance. Classes are kept intimate so that each student can work with our instructors to find and sculpt his/her own sound.
We are very proud of our new classrooms and hope you will come explore them for yourself. In the meantime, take a look at this video along with the photos below to catch a glimpse of the expansion process and see what we have been up to.
