Let's Go Back to Basics: Hands-On-Learning!

Where students collaborate closely with mentors, attend workshops, and gain direct exposure to top-of-the-line audio technology.

At AudioGraph International (AGI), we believe that hands-on learning is the key to success in the music industry. Our courses are carefully designed to provide our students with practical experience using industry-standard equipment and software. We understand that a theoretical understanding of audio production is insufficient - real-world experience is essential to stand out in this competitive field.

AGI Founder and Cornerstone!

Our founder, Chilitos Valenzuela, has over thirty years of experience in the music industry and knows first-hand the importance of hands-on training. As an internationally renowned recording-mixing engineer, author of 10 books published by Hal Leonard Publishing, and an AVID Master Instructor, Chilitos firmly believes in the power of experiential learning.

As Chilitos has stated, "Direct feedback, hands-on learning provides immediate feedback from experienced mentors and allows easy collaboration with fellow students. Real-world experience. Nothing quite beats hands-on training for giving learners direct experience of using the latest technology, hardware, and equipment. Furthermore, networking opportunities by attending workshops and classes allow you to network with fellow audio professionals, potentially leading to future collaboration and employment."

Through our courses, you will learn to successfully connect audio equipment and software used by professionals in the industry. You will also learn valuable sound studio troubleshooting techniques, giving you the skills to overcome any technical challenges that may arise in your career.

Our partnership with AVID Technology allows us to offer the Pro Tools User, Operator, and Expert Certifications, giving our students a competitive edge in the job market.

Don't just take our word for it - hands-on learning has been proven to be the most effective method of skill acquisition. So why not join us at AudioGraph International and experience the benefits of practical, real-world training?

Student Testimonials

Tony Kanal (No Doubt):

"This is the best way to learn Pro Tools...small class size, hands on training at your own workstation, personal attention that caters to your needs. For anyone looking to take their Pro Tools knowledge to the next level, Chilitos is the man to see."

Sherry K. (LA-based Re-Recording Mixer):

"Small groups with our Pro Tools stations afforded the individual attention I wanted with lots of hands-on time... I made the right choice with Chilitos. When I began the class, I knew next to Nothing; by the end of my classes, I had the tools and understanding necessary to move forward on my own and feel confident in my abilities."
