MUSIC & Recording
Music means something different to everyone — but to some, it means everything.
Here, aspiring composers will evolve beyond writing; they’ll diversify their talents and learn how to become indispensable. Engineers will not only train their ears; they’ll practice on (and learn the science behind) industry-standard recording equipment. Those interested in the production of live events will do more than study the elements of a great performance; they’ll build those skills in live venues, with real audiences and real performers.
