Our Founder Chuck Tolbert created The Recording & Digital Institute of West Palm Beach as a labor of love, after having lifelong undeniable industry success and endless contacts. He wanted to give back, and saw a need for a different type of school, where you learn hands on training from Day One and where students will be connected with industry internships, and then onto their new career!
