Miami, FL (PRWEB) July 24, 2013
SAE Institute, which was recently recognized as being the best audio engineering school in America, will present the next edition of "Celebrity Sundays" - a studio series for the audio technology students who study at their Miami campus - on Sunday, July 28.
"Celebrity Sundays" is a monthly initiative that welcomes producers and 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 working with artists who are moving up in the entertainment industry."
The next "Celebrity Sundays" event on July 28 will feature a session with Walshy Fire. Currently the master of ceremonies for Major Lazer, a genre-bending dancehall trio that’s on tour with DJ/rapper/producer Diplo, Walshy is also an internationally renowned reggae DJ, a top-rated radio host on Miami’s 96 MIXX, and a music consultant to Miami’s annual Caribbean Carnival. SAE audio technology students who achieve the most lab hours and the highest grade point average will work as assistant engineers for Walshy’s recording session, which will include new rappers and producers who Walshy has been developing.
"When I heard about ‘Celebrity Sundays’ and saw videos of their previous sessions, I couldn’t believe that an audio engineering school offered such a fantastic program," says Walshy. "From what I know about SAE students and grads, they’re all extremely knowledgeable about their craft, and I’m looking forward to working with them."
According to Brooks, SAE offers programs like "Celebrity Sundays" to make their grads employment-ready when they connect with the school's international network of alumni.
"Upon graduation, our students will know both the technical details about audio technology and production as well as how to correctly apply that knowledge in real world scenarios," says Brooks. "'Celebrity Sundays’ provides our students with the practical expertise that employers look for, and will give them a huge competitive edge in the marketplace."
