Welcome to the Game Audio Institute!

The Game Audio Institute has been educating students and teachers on the fundamentals of interactive audio for over a decade. We have found that the best way to learn about game audio is inside the game itself. Our classroom tested courses and detailed game lessons get right to the heart of the special nature of adaptive media, with many of our students going on to work for some of the world’s top game companies.

I had the opportunity of attending Steve Horowitz and Scott Looney’s Game Audio Workshop at San Francisco State University this summer. The pace of the course was perfectly matched for everyone’s learning abilities and covered everything I wanted to know about video game sound!
Michael KimMichael Kim(Composer/Sound Designer)
I was very fortunate in attending the Game Audio Summer Intensive workshop at SFSU (2018) and found it tremendously informative, I traveled all the way from Texas! I gained valuable insight, into what I would have to learn and prepare in order to be successful in this career. I highly recommend this workshop to anyone who'd like to have a better understanding of game audio.

Steve and Scott do a really great job of laying out the foundations of video game audio. Don't miss the tutorials they have provided; this is one of the few places I’ve found that offers hands-on, step-by-step instructions on how to implement your audio into actual game levels.

We brought Scott and Steve out for an all-day hands-on workshop. The student attendees LOVED the material, the module, and the delivery. The book has been a great resource for my audio students and the new online course promises to be fantastic for all levels of student! Thank you Scott and Steve!
