Reason-focused courses at Musicians Institute
MI’s new Reason-focused courses will be required for all students in Performance Programs for Bass, Drums, Guitar, Keyboard Technology and Vocals.

As part of the school’s blended learning initiative, which pairs classroom instruction with digital delivery of multimedia content, MI will install Reason in a variety of computer lab workstations across campus. Students will also have access to special discounts that allow them to purchase Reason for their own personal use. The partnership will ensure that MI has continual access to the latest Reason upgrades, and will enable Propellerhead to incorporate feedback on how their software is used by MI faculty and students.

“In today’s music industry, musicians are expected to be proficient in both the recording and performance fields,” said Donny Gruendler, Vice President of Academic Affairs at Musicians Institute. “MI is dedicated to providing our students with the tools they need to stay on the cutting edge of contemporary music, and Reason is the perfect program to do just that. We’re excited to partner with Propellerhead, a company that shares our mission to provide an innovative and well-rounded music education.”

We look forward to sharing in the development of the next generation of music artists.”

Reason audio production software offers guitarists, bassists, drummers and other musicians all the tools and instruments they need to turn ideas into music. With an intuitive visual workflow that accelerates the creative process, Reason makes it easy to record and mix great-sounding tracks. An expandable rack of instruments, samplers, drum machines, effects modules, and guitar processors provides an endless array of inspiring sounds. The Propellerhead Rack Extension audio plug-in platform enables musicians to expand their workflow even further with additional instruments and effects that integrate seamlessly into the Reason rack.

Avid has announced that world-class educational establishment and Avid Learning Partner Musicians Institute College of Contemporary Music, in Hollywood, California, has expanded its partnership with Avid to give the next generation of creative talent access to the industry’s leading audio technology.

With the addition of the Avid System 5 digital audio mixing console, students can gain valuable hands-on experience with the tools and workflows used in the real-world production environments of today and tomorrow.

This implementation expands Musicians Institute’s existing Avid workflow, which includes the industry-leading Pro Tools®|HDX system. With Pro Tools|HDX integration, System 5 is now fully networked with the recently announced Avid MediaCentral Platform, giving the Musicians Institute access to an even wider range of tools and experts for collaboration, music production, and, eventually, monetization of their own content.

“Avid audio consoles and control surfaces are the industry standard in post-production and broadcast,” said Mehdi Hassine, music and post-production instructor at Musicians Institute. “As our students transition into the real world, it’s critical that they have solid practical experience on the leading audio systems to prepare them for the pressures of our highly demanding media production world.”

Avid systems are used in every lab, studio and main live performance room at Musicians Institute’s world-class facilities. It offers hands-on experience in a wide variety of consoles and control surfaces as part of its audio engineering program, including Avid ICON D-Control™, D-Show® and SC48. All of its studios are currently transitioning to Pro Tools|HDX.

“Proficiency in Pro Tools is an essential requirement for any music or post-production engineering position,” continued Hassine. “As an Avid Learning Partner, our students are able to distinguish themselves as they enter the profession by proving their dedication and excellence through the certification process. It also means we stay current and relevant with the latest hardware, software and curriculum. From training our instructors to providing technical support, Avid has been a key partner in our facility and curriculum.”

“By giving students hands-on experience on the industry-leading digital audio solutions, Musicians Institute is able to prepare students to meet the demands of real-world production environments and excel as audio professionals,” said Jeff Rosica, senior vice president of worldwide field operations at Avid. “Our Avid Everywhere vision extends to the entire ecosystem of artists, content creators, producers, and aspiring professionals – all of whom deserve access to the highest-quality, most innovative tools for their craft. We’re pleased to partner with Musicians Institute and to help set a new standard for professional audio education.”
