Along with classes focused on the various music industries, business, marketing, and recording skills, students will also acquire education in musical theory, history, and performance, creating well-rounded graduates able to speak the language of music and navigate the myriad aspects of the music industry.
To enhance learning in the classroom, students will have ample opportunities for experiential learning with local and regional music venues, artists, artists managers, promoters, recording studios, musical instrument producers, and music retailers of all kinds.
