1500 Sound Academy’s mission is to educate and train students to excel in music production as a career. We seek to identify unique talents in each student and develop them into artistic voices consistent with high industry standards. We believe success in this field ultimately relies on integrity - stylistic and musical, but also personal and professional. Preparing students for the sometimes-difficult studio and social scenarios in the entertainment industry is a prime directive of the Academy.

Founded on direct knowledge from Grammy winning collective 1500 or Nothin’, our curriculum is contemporary in its approach and imparts relevant technical and creative skills for composers, songwriters and sound engineers. Through integrated courses and projects, students apply practical knowledge of music theory, sound design, and composition into their own projects.

Music is a powerful catalyst for the kind of personal growth central to building a strong artistic community. 1500 Sound Academy is based in the community that fostered its founders’ own success in urban Los Angeles. We hope our students continue to contribute to the local creative community of Los Angeles and innovate in the global music community at large.
