SSR are delighted to announce our brand new partnership with Steinberg, one of the world’s leading music software companies.
This new partnership sees SSR become Manchester’s Steinberg Certified Training Centre, awarded in perfect time for the new 2016/17 academic year, cementing our reputation further still as an excellent provider of high quality academic, short and industry relevant education.
With SSR being one of the leading providers of music technology education, partnering with Steinberg – a leading producer of music recording, arranging and editing software, is a perfect match. As a result, we expect many students to complete Steinberg training per annum, making SSR a leading certifier of Steinberg Certification.
Tom Aston, Technical Director at SSR summed up the importance of this new partnership. “Steinberg products have been a core component of SSR's curriculum for over 25 years now. Since Cubase 2.0 in 1990, hundreds of students have graduated through us with knowledge and experience of Steinberg's audio workstation software.From Steinberg checking over our curriculum and supporting our tutors, to providing student masterclasses and a presence at a number of our events, Steinberg's unique approach to certification and its support of training centres will ensure our students receive the perfect Cubase learning experience.We're really excited to become a Steinberg Certified Training Center and are looking forward to working with Richard, Andrew and the team at Steinberg for many years to come.”
Richard Llewellyn, Steinberg’s Education Manager, UK added "I am delighted that SSR-Manchester are now a Steinberg Certified Training Centre. This new partnership shows our commitment to supporting SSR-Manchester as a centre of excellence. I have been extremely impressed with their level of professionalism and their outstanding facilities. Having been established for over 30 years, the history at SSR-Manchester is amazing with bands such as The Smiths, The Stone Roses, 808 State and New Order having used their studios. Students at SSR-Manchester will now benefit from this partnership with greater access to Cubase and specialist training."
