We’re now a month into the final semester of 2021 and we have some very exciting announcements to share! The one that’s decidedly been the hardest to keep a secret is the news that Nimbus will be moving to a new state-of-the-art campus on January 4th, 2022! Daily Hive reports (and more on this below).

Nimbus is moving in the New Year

When the pandemic hit, we adapted by moving our classes to an online format, then to a blended in-person-online format as restrictions eased. With schools around the country now fully reopened, we count ourselves as incredibly fortunate that our staff and students rallied to embrace…

We’re thrilled to offer a brand new online course at Nimbus starting this September. Our Electronic Music Production course gives students the opportunity to learn the fundamental skills of electronic music production without having to enrol in a full-time program. Currently, the course runs for 7 weeks with classes meeting for 3 hours every week.

About the course

Electronic Music Production will introduce aspiring electronic music producers to foundational skills and techniques using Ableton Live, one of the most powerful Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs) in the world. Students will learn how to utilize the main views to produce music and create beats.


Another summer gone by, another semester that we can’t wait to get started. Follow us on Instagram for our insider tips on making this semester a success. For job opportunities, new courses and everything else you need to know for September, look no further:
