Partner Feature – Music Industry Arts (MIA)

In 1975 Fanshawe College‘s “Creative Electronics” program was born. Originally created by Tom Lodge, an English author, and radio broadcaster; the program began to evolve into ‘Music Industry Arts‘, (MIA) a training program for recording engineers and record producers.
The program was re-energized by legendary Canadian producer, Jack Richardson. As a former faculty member, he inspired students to be knowledgeable and ahead of emerging trends and technologies in the music industry. Richardson had mentored and trained many of the industry’s leaders across North America and is perhaps best known for producing the biggest hit records from The Guess Who from 1969 to 1975 and The Juno Award for “Producer of the Year” that has been named in Richardson’s honor since 2002.

Graduates of this program have led the industry by leaps and bounds with Grammys, Emmys, Junos and many other great achievements. Although it was originally known as an engineering and producing school, it has since expanded into artist development which as Dan Brodbeck says “Has brought new room energy to the city.” He also made mention that as he was sharing with us the Standstills, (graduates from 2009) were performing at Bud Gardens with Our Lady Peace and I Mother Earth.

In fact, most of our engineers at Prevail Music Studios are graduates from the Music Industry Arts Program. It seems as though no matter how much time has passed, MIA will always be there to support its artists. Thank you for the support on Start Your JRNY and for continuing to develop some of the many talented artists and engineers that hail from our great city.

MIA gave me a sense of family and teamwork. It helped me develop the tools that I needed to become independent and get ready to work as well as express my creativity and discover new paths for my life. I can honestly say that the program and teachers involved have affected my life in such a positive way and helped me carve a distinct career path in the Canadian music industry.” – Andreas Rizek (Graduate 2014)

Connecting Our Local Community

Prevail Media Group came together because each of our divisions had a dream; to make a difference in the lives of artists & business’ alike. #StartYourJRNY focuses on building the career of an artist or group as well as bringing together the community of London not only in the music & art sectors but the community as whole with the support of our Partners.

Since the beginning of this project, we took some time to really get to know our Partners. We quickly learned that each has its own rich and wonderful history all of which in our eyes has contributed to our great Forest City.

Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be showcasing each of these businesses not only in their contributions but why they play such a key role in SYJ & our city.

Stay tuned!
