The purpose of Parklands College Studios is three fold. Firstly to provide our learners with an environment where they can explore and discover sound, film and new media. Secondly to teach them new skills that can be incorporated into any subject and thirdly to extend our offerings in an effort to help our learners identify their passions whilst still at school.
Equipped with the latest technology, the studios offer opportunities for learners to learn media recording and production skills as part of the Sound Engineering, Film and Animation courses on offer. These courses are held during the academic day and are part of our experiential learning programme, where learners use industry standard equipment and software to develop real world and entrepreneurial skills. This facility has given our music learners the chance to experience working in all aspects of a professional studio environment and our sound engineer's experience in mastering and mixing music.
The vision for Parklands College Studios is for it to become a launch pad for young, creative South African media and music talents, in all areas of the industry.
