Best Music School Four Years in a Row


Billboard Names L.A. Recording School a Top Music Business School of 2020

Billboard Magazine released its Top Music Business Schools of 2020 this month and The Los Angeles Recording School, a division of The L.A. Film School, ranks among the best schools in the country. The Music Production Degree Program is in its seventh year, and the Entertainment Business Bachelor of Science degree program recently expanded its course offerings to include Music Business. This is the fourth consecutive year Billboard has ranked The L.A. Recording School in its Top Music Business Schools list.

We are honored to receive this recognition from a prestigious publication like Billboard Magazine. This ranking comes during a time when our campus students and faculty are working diligently in a remote setting, an adjustment our online students and faculty have been accustomed to. We continue to strive for academic excellence across all degree programs while shifting our campus curriculum. Our goal is always to provide the best possible education in the entertainment arts.

The L.A. Recording School in Billboard Magazine

In the heart of Hollywood on Sunset Boulevard, the Los Angeles Recording School is a division of the Los Angeles Film School that offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Audio Production and, newly introduced, in Music Production, as an online course. (Associate of Science degrees are also available.) In January, the school hosted Academy Award-nominated songwriters — Cynthia Erivo, Bernie Taupin, Diane Warren, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez — in a panel discussion for students hosted by songwriter and ASCAP chairman/president Paul Williams.

Alumnus: During the school’s annual F.A.M.E. Week last September, recording engineer Henrique Andrade was honored for his work on Zayn’s album, Mind of Mine, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in 2016.
