Being amongst the first students of a new academy you always are in two minds about how things are going to work out for you.. For me personally, Gray Spark has turned out to only be a great positive influence in my life mainly because of the amazing mentorship I get here. The faculty out here has a genuine desire to teach and mould everyone who has the goal of becoming a successful Audio engineer in the future. What makes this place stand out from the rest is that apart from the education you need in becoming an Audio Engineer it also equips you in how you can train yourself in becoming a true professional at the job which I think is completely unique.
