Our curriculum began in 2012. Teaching and mentoring students, Francis Soohoo Kim, producer of international renown, created a unique curriculum aimed towards empowering aspiring artists to be creative and savvy professionals in the modern music industry.

After three years of pedagogical and financial success, Francis Kim was approached by the world-renowned Elite Educational Institute.

EEI Creative Arts was founded in 2015. First operating as EEI School of Music from a small studio in the Koreatown neighborhood of Los Angeles, our music institute moved to state of the art studios in Hollywood in 2017. With an extraordinary advisory committee guiding its growth, EEI Creative Arts provides visionary education in contemporary music.

Staffed with some of LA’s top producers and educators, EEI Creative Arts is dedicated to granting expert knowledge and professionalizing experiences in the music industry to the next generation of professional musicians.

Our programs of study are the first of their kind, combining technical knowledge and individual projects, centered around creating an original creative portfolio for each student.

With original singles, covers, remixes, photography, project-specific music engineering, and personal student websites, our programs prepare our students like no other in the United States. Classes are individual or in group, and take place in our fully equipped production and recording studios.

Our mission is to provide students with a challenging academic and artistic environment that promotes professional experience and individual growth in Music. Our students develop the knowledge and skills necessary to unlock their artistic potential by the completion of personal projects of the highest quality.

EEI Creative Arts gives the student a unique insight in the production of professional products which meet and exceed the standards of the music industry.

Our programs are unique, as they focus on every stage of creating music, and give our students a solid foundation for an artistic image. With original singles, covers, remixes, photography, project-specific music engineering, and personal student websites, our programs prepare our students like no other in the United States.
