Music professor Gerard Paul Elviña is the first Filipino and second Asian to join the Audio Engineering Society (AES) Standards Committee, the world’s largest community of audio experts.
Elviña of the iACADEMY Music Production and Sound Design joined the prestigious organization responsible for conducting the AES Standards Program and develops and publishes a number of technical standards, information documents, and technical reports within the field of professional audio technology.
“I feel honored and privileged as this was dominantly composed of Americans and Europeans. I’m actually the 2nd Asian to be part of them,” Elviña shared in an iACADEMY release.
Elviña is a resident faculty at the School of Design and the Arts where he teaches Music Production and Sound Design, a program launched in April 2021 as a cutting-edge program designed to nurture the students’ creative talents and familiarize them with the latest digital technology needed to become a successful professional in their preferred area of specialization.
“We are at par with the other Audio Schools around the world being an Avid Learning Partner (ALP) for ProTools – (the first ALP Academe in the Philippines) and we also have a partnership with Dolby Atmos – which is the future of Audio and Music. Our faculty is composed of seasoned and distinguished practitioners with a combined knowledge and wisdom of over 50 years in the industry. Add to that, iACADEMY’s program offerings are really unique and truly game changing and that would really place the Philippines in the world’s technological and education radar,” adds the Filipino music expert.

Our faculty are not just learned individuals but they are also experts in their fields – updated with the latest trends and developments and constantly learning from prestigious institutions and organizations so that our students get the best quality education that can be provided for them”, shares Vanessa Tanco, CEO and President of iACADEMY.
