Pyramind in San Francisco has expanded to include a 3,600-square-foot building at 832 Folsom Street, close to its headquarters at 880 Folsom Street. The new space will offer two new classrooms: a room for 20 students with 21 workstations that will also be used for recording bands, guest lectures and public and sponsored events; and a second HD surround mix classroom with space for 10 students.
The HD surround room will feature audio and video production capabilities. In addition, the new building offers a spacious student lounge and admissions office.
Pyramind has also announced a new weekend study program and certificate: the Music and Audio Production Weekend Certificate (MAP), which allows working students to attend Pyramind classes.
Pyramind will hold a grand opening for the new building on Saturday, October 13, 2007, to include the launch of its subsidiary company Epiphyte Records and the CD/DVD release of Test Press SF. The free event is open to the public, and more information is available at www.pyramind.com/tpt.
"The demand for more space for more students has allowed us to grow this year," says Greg Gordon, director and president of Pyramind. "Our curriculum has proven successful in getting students jobs in the audio and video industry when they graduate. We've had a lot of new requests from students that we are now able to accommodate in the new building. And we now can also offer students a weekend class schedule, which is more cost effective and easier to schedule for many working musicians. The larger space allows us to host the Test Press public music events in-house, as well."
The added space allows Pyramind's three production studios to host students for even more hands-on time to work on their class projects and make their own music.
