Abbey Road Studio launches educational program

The Abbey Road Institute is a new educational program launched out of the legendary London facility offering training in audio production and engineering, and music theory and music business management.

More details from the Guardian:
Students aged 18 and over from around the world will be able to study for a 12-month advanced diploma in music production and sound engineering at the institute, which will be housed in the legendary north London studio complex where the Beatles recorded nearly all their albums and singles.

They are also promised the opportunity to use the studio’s recording spaces, control rooms and equipment.

...The course will be taught by recognised music industry experts, including producers and label executives, with guest lectures from Abbey Road Studios engineers. Additional Abbey Road Institutes will launch in Berlin, Munich, Melbourne and Sydney for the September 2015 intake, with more locations to be announced. But all students will have the opportunity to visit and learn at the London base, where there will be a new, purpose-built classroom and studio facilities.
