An accessible and affordable complete online Multimedia Academy launches this November 2018 in New Orleans.

Created by NOLA Natives and industry veterans Donovan Williams and Tre Pierre the venture plans to offer aspiring artists an affordable alternative to traditional arts education.

Nola Sound Lab Academy will launch in late fall and include courses in Music, Photography, Art & Design, Videography & Music Production.

“I watched so many people waste money on studio time or give up because they lacked understanding of the fundamentals of music production,” explained Pierre. “Traditional Art Academies are cost prohibitive, so we wanted to create an alternative and more modernized approach to multimedia education”

A membership to the Nola Sound Lab Academy starts at $99 for preregistration and includes access to courses across all disciplines for two years. The courses are self paced and require prerequisites for advancement in each subject matter. Students receive a certificate of completion for each disciple they work through. Price will rise marginally following the launch, but it remains at the root of the company’s mission to keep prices affordable and eduction accessible.

“Big ships can’t turn as quickly as small ships,” explained Williams when asked about their innovative approach to education. “While Universities attempt to transition their traditional format to the online space, we are creating a platform that is in-line with the times and accessible to everyone interested in art and music.”

Founding partner Tre Pierre is a graduate of The Art Institute of Atlanta in Music Production and has run a successful music studio in New Orleans called Nola Sound Lab.  He has collaborated with music industry giants such as Kevin Gates, Curren$y, Rich the Kid, and Fat Trell of Maybach Music.

Donovan Williams is a web designer and photographer by trade.  He built his first website at 12, but has experimented with digital art and design since he was just five years old. Williams has a background in self paced, online education. His resume includes music video shoots, fashion photography and multiple web builds.
