The music industry is:
relationship-driven, apprenticeship-based, and creatively engaged.
So are we. And you can be, too.
Everything we do is guided by professionals currently working in the music industry.
They tell us what they want you to know: the music industry is relationship-driven, apprenticeship-based, and creatively engaged.
This means we give you small, personalized classes that provide both a solid foundation and specialized areas of study. With a 4:1 lab:class ratio, you have plenty of hands-on opportunity to develop your skills. Professional development and small business entrepreneurship courses, as well as unparalleled career resources, prepare you to make the all-important professional connections. You plug-in to both the local and global music communities through trips to music industry conferences, on-campus guest speakers, and two guided internships. Finally, because the best musicians make the best business people, expert musicians give you weekly private instrument lessons.
Because we “get” music, all of this plus your own laptop, hardware, and software are included in a tuition that is the best value in music industry education.
