Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences Reviews

CRAS was a fun experience for me. Although most instructors and classes are great, I would not necessarily recommend this school to a friend. For starters, the 11 month $23K tuition is insane. The instructors have a very "loose" way of teaching their classes. You will encounter many weird rules as well. Once you finish the academic portion and move on to your required internship, the coordinators don't help you much and you are kind of on your own. They focus too much on the studio recording side while only having small courses on other parts of the audio industry like, broadcast, audio business, and post production. In the end of the day, if you strictly want to pursue studio recording and live sound, then CRAS is the perfect fit hands down. But if you want to get into broadcast and post production audio or anything else, the it is better to look at a different school or college in that case.

This is my first time attending college, but in my limited experience as a student at the Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences I can attest that I enjoy spending my time at CRAS. I believe I have made the best investment in my education by attending the Conservatory. The Conservatory offers a wide expanse of certifications in all areas of audio. The teachers are fired up and passionate about what they are teaching which in turns ignites a fire in my soul. I cannot wait to see where I end up after graduating the Conservatory.
The school provides every student with a macbook pro, mic, and many more tools to complete the program. The classes are small to gain as much one on one time as possible and provides a very individualized program for each student and builds well rounded employees. Part of the program requires a 12 week internship to get your foot in the door and makes you eligible for work immediately after graduation.
