Where can I study Kyma?

There are Kyma systems installed in teaching studios all over the world, so chances are, you can find one near where you live! Call the university, college, conservatory, studio certification program, or arts training program near you, and ask to speak with the person in charge of electronic/computer music, sound design, post production or studio engineering; that person should be able to tell you whether their facilities include a Kyma system and whether they offer any courses where you can learn more about Kyma.

Below, you'll find an incomplete list of institutions where you can study Kyma and earn college credits, degrees or professional certification at the same time. This list is by no means comprehensive, so if you teach at an institution where Kyma is used, please request that your institution be added to the list. If you are eager to study electronic and computer music at an institution where you can have access to Kyma, check out these schools and/or give your preferred school a call and ask them whether they provide Kyma access as part of their program of study. If you don't find your preferred institution listed below, try searching this link to institutions offering graduate study in music, and ask the contact person whether they have Kyma in their studios.

By exploring Kyma, you are also learning basic concepts of acoustics, sound synthesis, and DSP (not to mention having a lot of fun in the process)! The basic knowledge you gain by working in Kyma will be applicable to any other software or hardware system you encounter in the future. Learning Kyma is more than just learning how to use a particular application — it's learning about sound itself! That knowledge will never go out of style!
