  • Studying Audio Engineering and Music Production at the Cyprus School of Sound provided me with numerous new skills and ideas about the whole subject. Our teacher (Aries Koliniotis) at the course is a very skilful, intelligent individual who loves what he does and makes sure his students enjoy his classes, providing them with every useful tip and information considering audio engineering, production etc.
    His methods of teaching really enlighten and help every student try to better themselves on the subject. He is a patient man who is willing to help each and every student of his, providing them with a new experience considering music creation. The studios we use are filled with the best equipment and tools. With the help of our teacher we learnt about everything surrounding the studio and with the use of these tools we managed to gain a large amount of knowledge and appreciation for audio engineering and music production as a whole. I highly recommend the CSS for a better learning experience!!!
