Audio Workshop presents a new model of training for sound professionals!

The idea behind ​​these courses was born from a simple observation: most sound designers and musicians have been trained “on the job” through experience. There are very few courses specifically designed for these areas and we still lack benchmarks.

As the first audio training center in France to bridge the gap between education and the professional world Audio Workshop is an innovator, breaking with the codes of traditional training and reaching out to the world of work. More than fifteen active industry pros will take you through the exciting universe of sound, with additional master classes featuring international speakers and trips to partner companies throughout Europe!

Our goal: to turn our sound apprentices into competent professionals, able to work at the highest level right out of training.

After 10 years of experience, we strongly believe that the best way to learn the profession of sound designer is hands-on. Our pedagogical philosophy is based on the key values ​​that we want to instill: passion, self-reliance and responsibility.

To work in sound you need skills, a network and references, and Audio Workshop offers you all three, through training based on a broad experience of the industry and fully compatible with the evolving demands of the job market.

There is no ideal age to start a career in sound and we give equal attention to all applicants. Whether you are freshly graduated from high school, have just finished your higher education or in full professional reconversion, do not hesitate to contact us for more detailed information about our training courses and the employment opportunities they offer.

The courses we offer are taught by highly-reputed sound designers and technicians and are organized along 2 main axes:

Audiovisual post production: Sound design and other sound professions in the film and television industry.

Video games: Sound design and other interactive sound professions for the video game world.
