A look inside our Studios Visit us

Abbey Road Institute Frankfurt is located centrally in Frankfurt Ostend right next to the tram-station Schwedlerstraße. We occupy the whole ground floor of the corner building, and built four state-of-the-art studios with three live rooms, classrooms and a comfortable lounge area.

Throughout the course you’ll have access to the studios at different stages, depending on the modules you’re working on, both as part of the timetabled teaching as well for independently managed recording and production and mixing. Every student has access to a powerful computer workstation available before, during and after class.

You can take your project from the studio and continue recording, editing and mixing on the computer workstation. Abbey Road Institute students can be sure they are learning on the very best industry standard equipment in the classroom and studio.

Our studios feature a wide array of software and hardware allowing for various hybrid set ups which are both practical and suitable for the modern day audio engineering environment.

Practical time is allocated on an individual basis and fully supervised by our qualified staff. Practical sessions can be booked by students on a weekly or monthly basis during the operating hours of the Institute.
