Mississauga, Ontario (August 16, 2005)–Metalworks Institute of Sound and Music Production recently achieved authorization to become Digidesign’s first Pro School partner for Eastern Canada. Metalworks will be offering all levels of the Digidesign-authorized courses, from Pro Tools 101 to Pro Tools 310M and 310P. Students will learn Pro Tools and ICON, with the ability to achieve official Pro Tools certification. Students will also have the opportunity to learn on one of the largest ICON systems in the world featuring an 80-fader D-Control Console and full-blown Pro Tools|HD Accel system.
“Digidesign ICON was an easy choice for us,” enthused Metalworks owner Gil Moore. “Our engineers and instructors liked the traditional feel of the work surface, but were really excited about this console from an operational viewpoint. It is generations ahead of other digital desks.”
“There are many reasons we identified Metalworks Institute as our first Digidesign Authorized Pro School in Eastern Canada” said Andy Cook, Worldwide Manager of Digidesign Training & Education. “We carefully looked over their educational approach and found a forward thinking school where learning comes first, an ethical and nurturing environment, and the ingredients for a partnership with Digidesign that is open and collaborative.”
Digidesign senior product specialist, Luc Bourgeois added, “The engineers and faculty are among the most skilled in Canada, and their outstanding campus facilities, including one of the world’s largest ICON systems, complement their world class studio complex.”
Digidesign is also working with Metalworks to offer an annual scholarship award for outstanding achievement by a student in the area of Pro Tools.
Pro Tools courses commence September 2005. For further information on the Pro School at Metalworks Institute or on Metalworks’ one & two year diploma programs please call 905-279-4002 / toll-free 1-866-783-2200 or email email@example.com.
