The Vatterott College ex’treme Institute by Nelly-St. Louis, the new music production school opening in late November, will permit students to gain real life experience working alongside artists, producers and engineers in the music industry.

           The 9,000-square foot facility, located on Laclede’s Landing in downtown St. Louis, will house a recording studio, a music engineering space, and a design studio in which students can work on creating album covers and other music related artwork. Students can create their own schedule, choosing from the available courses. The courses are designed for all types of music genres.

           “Working with Nelly and his team has been an exciting opportunity for us at Vatterott College,” said Pam Bell, Chief Executive Officer and President of Vatterott Educational Centers, Inc. “Nelly has shown such commitment to the people of St. Louis and is taking great steps in training the next generation of music producers. We couldn’t be more excited to partner with one of St. Louis’ most celebrated music artists.”

           Bell added that the new school’s model of hands-on training fits well with Vatterott’s educational philosophy of providing real world experiences for students.  One difference, though, is that the recording school will look to educate people who are not necessarily interested in a music career but want to learn or improve recording and production skills and have the chance to work on studio-quality equipment, Bell said.

    The building opens to the public on November 21st. Classes begin on November 28th. For more information and a complete list of the offered courses, visit
