Justin Tranter Recording Studio

"It's an unbelievable place. We all have nostalgia about where we went to school, but I just feel so fortunate that I have the privilege to not only feel nostalgia but also give back in a really concrete way."

Check out alum and hit songwriter Justin Tranter in the news (links below) discussing his career and the opening of the new Justin Tranter Recording Studio at The Academy! The new three-room facility features state-of-the-art equipment and will be the home for The Academy’s writing and production courses debuting later this month. Our new facilities and programs are made possible by his generous gift.

Justin has used his voice to not only bring joy to millions of people through his songwriting, but to act as a powerful advocate and social activist. Through this gift, he will no doubt be inspiring an entire generation of Academy students to fully harness the power of their own creative voices.
