Why Punkademic?

Punkademic Courses started with educators who were teaching music production at universities in the U.S. These teachers became disheartened with the cost of their classes through the university, and wanted to find a way to make them more affordable and accessible to everyone. These teachers became academic ex-patriots. The punks of the academic world. The Punkademics.

The only online education platform focused on paying the teacher.


When you buy a class from Punkademic.com, the teacher of that class gets 95% of the purchase price.
That is far and away the highest percentage paid on any education platform. (Most platforms pay their teachers around 40%, but the "big ones" are as low as 7%.

How do we do it? Punkademic is owned by the instructors. There is no CEO, CFO, or CTO that needs
to get their cut. We put about 5% towards processing credit cards and maintaining this website, but the rest
goes to the teacher. As it should.

PRICE MATCH:
If you find any of our courses on another site for a cheaper price, we will match it. 
That way you have the peace of mind of knowing that you got the best deal, and the teacher makes the
maximum possible for their work. 
Just send us an email with a screenshot.

We accept crypto currency.

This is exactly what I needed. I managed to make my tracks sound professional instantly! I still have a long way to go but this was definitely a huge milestone in my mixing career...

These classes are clear, relatable, applicable, and meaningful in a way that music theory has never before been. It's exactly what I was hoping for.

These courses are the most professional courses you will find on the internet and will give you a push to the moon in your production.
