Institute of Production & Recording Reviews
I am a newly enrolled freshman at IPR, my start date is July 2nd. Originally the enrollment process seemed lengthy and extremely daunting. However with the help of the school's many knowledgeable advisers, I have been able to successfully complete the enrollment process and am on my way to the next step in life's incredible journey! What sparked my interest in IPR was when I had a friend do some recording and mixing for me, he was attending IPR at the time so we had full access to the studios 24/7! This ease of access to state of the art equipment and full access to prominent individuals working in the industry today shot my interest through the roof. Despite the tuition cost and how expensive it will be to live in the city, this is the school I needed to attend. I have experienced and heard nothing but positive things about The Institute of Production and Recording, it is an incredible school.
Although only beginning my 2nd quarter of classes at IPR, I feel a strong connection toward this school that applies to a field I had always desired to be a part of. The facilities and staff are accommodating in terms of helping achieve practical success and applying their knowledge to real-life scenarios. Being a school directly and specifically linked to the media industry, it’s already known that students fit within a given niché. For that reason, the experience feels authentic and beneficial in a professional sense. No program is perfect, but it’s a good place to start! The only downside, in my opinion, is that the overall campus is relatively small, and yet it still manages to contain essential tools and materials to create professional-grade forms of media. In all, I am more than grateful I found this program to become a part of!
I like that it is a school that teaches you how about film and television along with music. I like the small class sizes, the commitment the faculty has to their students, and also the connections they have as well. I like that all of the professors actually have experience for whatever class they are teaching. I like that they have worked on feature film movies. I like everything about this school; I actually love it!
