SAE Institute Vancouver
Rob Aquino
It would be no exaggeration to say SAE Institute Vancouver literally changed my life for the better, something I'm putting into practice every day in my new career assisting artists of all ages in Buffalo, NY.


Career Achievements

  • Independent Producer/Engineer/guitar player in Vancouver, BC and Buffalo, NY
  • Engineer/Producer/Musician/Mixer at Cold Narly Generation in Buffalo NY
  • Beat Production teacher in Buffalo Public School after-school program

In Rob’s words:

“SAE Institute Vancouver, first and foremost, creates a family-like atmosphere – every employee to a person took me in from day one and nurtured me in every aspect of my learning. The production/engineering program itself was an intense full-time multi-disciplined program which was exactly what I needed to kick-start my formal career into producing.

It wasn’t enough to just learn – what made it special was that I got to truly know everyone at SAE Institute. The classes alone are taught by real-world experienced instructors, which would have been great enough. The after-hours assistance on projects while getting extra help and critiques (quite literally whenever I needed it) gave me the confidence to go out on my own and are what really made the program special to me.

Since graduation I haven’t let the school out of my sight entirely – I’ve returned to SAE Institute to use the facilities and also solicited periodic advice from the instructors (mentors!) when I’ve found myself stuck on a mixing issue with a real-world client.”
