Meet your instructor


Peter Miller has been at the forefront of the music scene since the early sixties, beginning his professional career in 1961 at Decca records in London, England.

Actually, his recording career began even earlier in 1958 when he engineered, wrote, and produced a six song album right out of his own home.
During the sixties Pete's performing career looks like a who's-who of legendary performers, playing over 100 dates with the Beatles, 20 with the Rolling Stones and sharing bills with the Dave Clark Five, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Dusty Springfield, Englebert Humperdinck, the Shadows, the Animals, The Who, the Byrds, Donovan, Gene Vincent, the Kinks, Cream, Stevie Winwood, Lonnie Donegan, Rod Stewart, Freddie and the Dreamers, Cilla Black, Billy J. Kramer and many many others.
During this period Peter recorded dozens of records as engineer, producer, performer, and songwriter for Decca, Columbia, Pye, Phillips, Polydor and other majorr record companies. As a songwriter, over 200 of his songs have been published by top publishing houses in Britain and the U.S.
Peter maintains contact with many of the legendary performers from the old days and keeps an ongoing relationship with major record labels both in the USA and Europe. He continues to operate his own 22 Records, an indpendent label he formed in 1974.
He left England in 1969 and shipped his entire recording studio to San Francisco where he found himself besieged with requests to teach others his skills. Peter willingly shared his knowledge with anyone who was genuinely interested in his work so naturally he began teaching the art of audio recording. This venture blossomed into AIA and some of his early students are now instructors at the institute.
His recording career is till very much alive. He has had a dozen albums released by various labels in the last decade, and he's even in the rock and roll hall of fame

An Open Letter to You from Peter
"The AIA course is based on my lifetime of actual working experience and training. I know exactly what you need to achieve your goals because I've done the same thing. I am still an active recording artist, engineer and producer.

I promise you the most practical, enjoyable, fact-filled learning experience of your life. And I will guide you every step of the way. I am dedicated to providing the best audio/visual training possible. It's my way of returning something to my profession.

I defy you to find any instructor in any recording school that can equal my experience and can share as much knowledge. There is nothing available anywhere at any price to equal what you will learn from our course. It is the most informative and up-to-date training course you will ever read. It will change your life!"


Peter is very proud to have a student who has won a Grammy Award!

MIX Magazine says this about our course...

"This complete course for new engineers provides a well-rounded music industry curriculum that doesn't just stop at the final mix. It does much to duplicate and augment the hands-on experience students need. The series of 25 big lessons in a 500+ page manual are rich in detail but presented in a gradual style, so one doesn't get overwhelmed by the technology."
