Sound Training Productions is a recording and production company led by Sound Training College Students and Graduates.
Sound Training College is focused on students releasing a professional product. Expert lecturers from the industry enable this as part of an innovative, career-focused curriculum. Lecturers continue to mentor students post-graduation, enabling employment through Sound Training Productions. This unique approach and commitment to education, allows our graduates to lead the industry. Throughout the years, STP has been involved with some fantastic artists both locally, nationally and internationally including James Vincent McMorrow, Rihanna, The Riptide Movement, Kayne West, The Script, The Cork Opera House, The High Kings, The Gaiety Panto, Paddy Hanna, Pepe Felly, Farah Elle, Search Party Animal, BARQ, Mundy, The Hot Sprockets, Destriers, Hollow Point, Ilenkus, SYLK, Jared Dylan, WOLFF, Molly Sterling, Inhaler & many many more.
We have produced successful albums for the benefit of Irish charities featuring established artists including Bressie, Neil Hannon, James Vincent McMorrow and many more. Through our charity albums, we have raised over €250,000 to date! Some of the Charities we have worked with are Samaritans, Aware, My Lovely Horse Rescue, Peter McVerry Trust, BeLong To Youth Services, Dublin Simon Community and more!
We also search for and develop new talent for the annual Searchlight project (formerly “Genre Free”). Searchlight is a 4-band, 4-month development deal. Bands will work on pre-production in the fantastic recording & production facilities of Sound Training Productions. They will record a number of tracks and perform at a headlight gig in one of Dublin’s best live music venues, Button Factory in Temple Bar. All this for FREE! Head over to our Searchlight page for more information!
For many of our students electronic music production is their speciality and because of this, students have developed an EMP (electronic music production) live event. Taking place towards the end of term each year, students will plan, produce, record and perform at their own live event in the Button Factory venue in Temple Bar! Utilising the techniques and performance skills they have learned. Some of the previous nights that have taken place have been Transmit, Dome, and in 2017 MODEM Records even secured themselves a residency in CrowBar in Dublin!
