Music hasn’t changed, just the ways we create and consume it. As educators it is our job to adapt and meet our students where they are and kids love games, so what a better way to get them engaged with music than by pairing it with their love of gaming? At the Game Audio Institute we have developed solid relationships with teachers and schools all over the world. Through these partnerships we can create fantastic programs that support students headed out into a new digital economy.

GAI works with schools both large and small—from junior high all the way up to college level—to meet the needs of their students and faculty. If you’re a teacher, administrator, or faculty member at a recognized academic institution you can purchase GAI game lessons for use in your classrooms at a discounted rate.

Our book, game lessons and online courses are being successfully used by the schools you see scrolling by. With 20 plus years of experience in the industry we can help you develop all kinds of courses. From single classes to full degree programs, let us consult with your educational advisors to taylor an educational path that best fits your school. We are also happy to visit your school, present workshops and master classes and train your staff and teachers in large or small group settings, or better yet, you can send them out to our annual summer workshop at San Francisco State University where they can get personalized hands on training.

MiddleSchool / High School

We have been educating kids in the classroom for over 10 years now, and have developed special online course materials as well as interactive game lessons geared and paced for middle and high school. Your students will really have fun creating their own music and sound design and then implementing those designs into real games that they can play with their friends.

College / University

We started GAI as college-level educators, so we know the specific needs of these students as well as how to prepare them for an increasingly digital and interactive world of audio production for a wide variety of mediums. Our teaching method gets real results in terms of the skills needed to thrive in the dynamic world of interactive media and games, and many of our students have gone on to work for some of the worlds top game companies.
