We are extremely proud of our current students and alumni here at The Blackbird Academy. Featured in the latest edition of the AES Journal is this article highlighting the AES Spring Mixer competition. Three students from The Blackbird Academy faced five other recording schools in the area, and in the end, came out on top. Taking first place in this year's competition was an exciting moment for our students and staff. We would like to thank the Audio Engineering Society and the Sping Mixer judges for giving us this opprotunity.
