Getting An "Idol" Makeover at SAE Institute Atlanta STORY: "American Idols" Kelly Clarkson, Phillip Phillips, and Jennifer Hudson all know -- making a hit record isn't easy. Having a good song and a good voice are part of the equation, but those don't mean anything if there isn't a good audio engineer recording the whole thing! That's where SAE Institute comes in. The "Creative Media Education" school started in 1976, and has more than 50 locations around the world. Here in Atlanta, the school is located at 215 Peachtree Street NE, appropriate next to the Hard Rock Café! Students inside learn all kinds of audio engineering -- not just for music, but for anything that requires sound recording.

To get an idea for what SAE students can do, Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken decided to record a song at the school and let the students mix it into a hit! So, watch out Phillip Phillips -- Paul is going "Home" and hoping SAE can take him to the top of the charts! For more information click here.
