Derek Garcia
In this business, your judgment is everything. SAE Institute helped me understand the variety of tools, and how to use them to achieve exactly what I wanted to create. Once I understood how to bridge the difference, I stopped worrying about what studio I was going to walk into next.


Derek has engineered for Jamie Foxx, Shakira, Joss Stone, Future and French Montana, just to name a few. In 2009 Derek was named Assistant Engineer for DJ Khaled’s track “All I Do is Win”.

In 2016 he returned to work with DJ Khaled and was credited as producer for GRAMMY® Nominated Best Rap Album, Major Key.

Derek currently resides in Miami, working as In-House Engineer/Producer for Kodak Black & Snipergang.
