Description:

The Music program is designed to teach students how to interpret and perform many contemporary musical styles from Rock to R&B, Pop to Jazz and Funk. There are three aspects of the program: performing, music theory and recording studio. Students perform four times a year, with one evening rock show off campus. Students will study music theory, arranging, songwriting, and the ins and outs of the music business. The audio engineering component of the program is unique in its approach to introducing students to recording, mixing, music production and live sound. Students receive instruction in recording, mixing, editing, a foundation in the physics of sound and electricity, and an in-depth survey of popular music fundamentals. With plenty of hands-on opportunities, students learn engineering techniques with cutting edge ProTools software. Students will record each other to create an album at the end of every year. Students who complete the program can further their education or enter into the workforce as a performer, composer, producer, sound mixer and more.
