Proudly, Fourty years as a professional recording studio, Fiasco Bros. is once again offering its a recording course. This course offers the chance to those who want to learn modern recording techniques taught by experienced industry professionals, in a comfortable and condusive atmosphere. With almost all hands on instructing and a small student to instructor ratio, our course has helped many people into positions within the industry. With now over Fourty years behind us we are a staple in the West Coast music industry.

This course is meant to be 4 months of dedicated instruction mixed with as many days of hands on studio time a student can fit in in the time. Usally we pick times that are convenient for instruction, other time is made available for students to sit in on actual sessions. A balance of information and "learn by doing".
For this reason we only take one or two students at a time.
