Talk about dedication! Everard came here all the way from Mexico, JUST to become an SAE Chicago Student. His love for music started at the ripe age of 12, when he first began composing. His mother, as his cheerleader, raised him to sing/play piano. His true love for the craft came when he began learning music theory.

One of our goals at SAE Institute is to fuel the passion for music, regardless of age or genre. Consequently, we’ve done quite a bit of youth-oriented events before, and it’s always great when we can show youth groups why an understanding of the engineering process is so essential to a musical education. Recently, our neighbors, the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra, had the opportunity to record at SAE Atlanta, and got a fascinating look at the world of studio recording [...]
At SAE Institute, we’re suckers for a good music doc (after all, we’re in the process of making one), so we’re understandably pleased to announce that SAE NY, in coordination with the GRAMMY folks, will be presenting a special screening of Re-Generation, a Hyundai-presented doc that follows five DJ’s in a quest to create music with artists outside of their genres (we know a little something about that too).
