Comprehensive Program

The Audio Engineering Program is a comprehensive program designed to educate students starting from a fundamental understanding of the science of sound waves, sound transmission, and acoustics. From this basic understanding, essential concepts start to take form through lecture, but more importantly from hands on applications and the completion of lab projects.


What separates Avant Media Institute from other programs is the amount of hands on learning and personal studio time students receive. Our curriculum immerses students in real workplace environments, including commercial recording studios and venues around the city of Houston.


Students will learn advanced audio systems and configurations, mixing and mastering audio for music and film, live sound reinforcement, and Avid Pro Tools Software. Additionally a music business class is required and informs students of important business concepts including contracts, publishing, copyright laws, distribution, and performance rights.

I really liked the small class sizes and one on one availability.
Everything was very hands on. The studioes are up to date and have accessible scheduling tiems. I met many new people I will keep in touch with in the future. Most importantly, Avant helped me gain the knowledge to become a professional audio engineer.
