Please, see the URL [www.aes.org] and find what you want. Remember, the
listing of the schools is only this, a listing, without any
approval stamp or special recommendation !
Finally, I liked very much of the Arjan Sinnige's answer.

Assunto: Re: [acoustics] Hello.
Don't know which area and which schools you are refering to and I shouldn't
be replying as I'm affiliated with one of them. (SAE)
Most (all) schools only teach you the technical stuff which is "needed" to
start working in the audio business. I put needed down
as you will NOT need any diploma or course to start working in audio. Just
good ears and a willingness to work long and really,
really hard. All info you will learn in schools is on the internet. I started
learning about audio several years ago and after
that took the SAE AED course. 85 % of what was teached I already knew. But No
school can teach you Creativity......
What you should try to learn before starting a job as Studio Engineer /
Producer is how to work with EQ, Desks, Outboard gear and
devellop a sense of understanding of music (training your ears..) All other
things will come after that. And you'll find out stuff
by just hanging out at places like these. Although the level of understanding
of acoustics is not needed for engineering quite as
deep as some people here can go. (That's a complimnet to the group.) As for
the differences in schools I can only say that you
should find out how much practical and theoretical time you get.
How much time do you get by yourselfs or in a small group (below 4 people) in
the studio to figure out what to do and how. And
how much theoretical will be given. (how many hours...) And what do you want
to know ? What kind of studio work do you want to
work in ? Digital, Tape based, Radio, TV or movies etc...
If you know this than you can eliminate some subjects although I would always
prefer to be broad knowledgable and based on that
further proffesionalise yourself in one area...
SAE is Good although I don't know where you are located and which courses you
are applying to.
I'll see ya in my class,
