Our music academy combines the rigor of a classical music education with deep knowledge of what it takes to succeed in the entertainment industry. Our offerings, recognized by the Mexican government’s Secretariat of Public Education, consist of:

  • Certificate programs. Fermatta Academy offers certificates in music performance, composition, and audio engineering.
  • Instrumental studies. Learn from master performers trained in guitar, voice, piano, bass, and percussion.
  • Bachelor’s degrees. Complete a bachelor’s degree in audio engineering, composition, or music performance.
  • Graduate degrees. Earn a master’s degree in music production, or get a master’s-level overview of the music and entertainment industry. 

The Fermatta Academy Difference

Our reputation as one of the world’s top music schools is built on the Fermatta Educational Method, our exclusive approach to music study. It offers an extremely rigorous education in three specific areas:

Theoretical Studies

Learn music theory, including key signatures, chord progressions, and how compositions are put together. Improve your ear training and learn to take melodic and rhythmic dictation. Dive into the history of music, from classical to modern-day, and learn more about modern genres including rock, jazz, hip-hop, and Latin.

Practical Studies

Succeeding in the music industry requires more than just theoretical knowledge. Our college gives you the chance to apply what you’ve learned, and you will be expected to demonstrate a strong work ethic and to perform to high standards.

Technological Studies

A key factor in the development of the new music industry is the implementation of new technology. The rapid change in communication technology has profoundly transformed the business model of both the record industry and music industry alike. Our students learn to operate the most advanced digital and analog recording and mixing equipment in existence, including:

  • Avid Digidesign ICON D-Control ES, Solid State Logic AWS 900, and Sony MXP3000 analog consoles
  • Avid Digidesign C-24 control surfaces
  • Over 90 individual recording stations containing Pro-Tools, Logic Pro, Digital Performer, Reason, Recycle, Finale, Sibelius, Ableton, Cubase, Traktor, and Melodyne

Our Faculty

Fermatta Academy’s faculty is composed of accomplished professional musicians as well as music industry leaders. Through Fermatta’s Instructors Educational Program, our faculty stays up to date with the latest teaching methods and most innovative techniques and industry data. They have years of experience, but they’re still in touch with the rapidly changing demands of the music industry.

We also welcome many great musicians and world-renowned entertainment industry figures to the Fermatta Master Class Series. Nearly every month, these artists mentor Fermatta Academy students, giving them direct contact with successful artists, songwriters, producers, engineers, managers, and music industry professionals.
