Meet Our Pros (graduates) !

Steffi, music publisher

Steffi is a musician who had bigger dreams. Upon enrolling at Trebas Institute, she already knew that she wanted to work with artists and their music. With the guidance of her “devoted” teachers as she likes to call them, she graduated and launched AI Music. Steffi is now specialized in copyright management and has seen several of her songs climb international charts.


Jennifer, scene manager

Attracted to the music industry, Jennifer could not find a program that met her expectations in her native Switzerland. So a few years ago, she chose to come to Montréal and enroll at Trebas Institute, where she graduated from the Music Business Administration program. She got to meet real industry professionals who are now helping her succeed on the international scene.
