Eat. Sleep. Work. Play.
For our students, "student life" means they are living music.
Music in Motion tends to remain in motion

THE COMMUNITY AS A CLASSROOM
We are not-your-average music industry education so our students don't take your average field trips to natural science centers. Instead, we go to some of the premiere recording studios, event production companies, venues, and manufacturers in the world.
With a 4:1 lab:class ratio and projects in the community nearly every month classes are in-session, it would be almost impossible to list everything we have done and continue to do... so here's just a small taste.
Do you have a business or non-profit that could benefit from partnering with us? A need for qualified interns? Something else you think we could work together one? We're in the "yes" business. Just fill out our online Community Project Engagement Request Form, and we'll do our best to find a way for us to work together.

Today's music industry requires leaders. That's why we both build and support these organizations that allow our students to take the lead.
The Audio Engineering Society (AES) is the only professional society devoted exclusively to audio technology. Founded in the United States in 1948, the AES has grown to become an international organization that unites audio engineers, creative artists, scientists and students worldwide by promoting advances in audio and disseminating new knowledge and research.
Elementary Records is our student-run record label. Every year, the grand prize winner of Instaband receives the full support of his label, including: professionally recorded EP, music video, graphic design, promotion and booking support. Additionally, Elementary Records promotes student-led events such as the outdoor Plugged In Music Festival and artist showcases.
GRAMMY U is a unique and fast-growing community of full-time college students, primarily between the ages of 17 and 25, who are pursuing a career in the recording industry. The Recording Academy created GRAMMY U to help prepare college students for their careers in the music industry through networking, educational programs and performance opportunities. GRAMMY U is designed to enhance students' current academic curriculum with access to recording industry professionals to give an "out of classroom" perspective on the recording industry.
