'Celebrity Sundays' gives our audio technology students the chance to gain essential experience by working with new artists who are moving up in the entertainment industry.

SAE Institute, recently selected as the best audio engineering school in America by Vibe Magazine, will introduce the second edition of “Celebrity Sundays”, a studio series for students at their Miami campus on Sunday, June 2.
“Celebrity Sundays” is a monthly initiative that welcomes new recording artists from the Miami area into the SAE studios. Top performing students in SAE’s audio technology program help to record and mix the artists’ music for demo purposes, and possible commercial release.
“Our students are on a mission to complete their lab hours early and study hard so they can be a part of ‘Celebrity Sundays’,” says Vincent Brooks, Campus Director at SAE Institute Miami. “It gives students the chance to gain essential experience by working with new artists who are moving up in the entertainment industry.”
“Celebrity Sundays” debuted in April with a session by Blow, a rapper signed to Independently Major Entertainment, a Miami-based company owned by retired NFL star Thomas Jones. The next “Celebrity Sundays” event on June 2 will feature a session with Yamir Gorritz, an emerging star on Miami’s Latin music scene. SAE audio technology students who achieve the most lab hours and the highest grade point average will work as the assistant engineers for Gorritz’s recording session.
“At SAE, we aim to make our grads employment-ready when they're ready to connect with our network of industry-leading alumni around the world,” explains Brooks. “They’ll know both the technical details about audio technology and production as well as how to correctly apply that knowledge in real world scenarios. ‘Celebrity Sundays’ provides our students with the practical expertise that employers look for, and will give them a huge competitive edge in the marketplace.”
