Get ready for the most intensely focused time of your college career! The CMC is experiential learning to the max. It's 24/7, nothing but music for four solid months. The mornings are for classes, but the rest of the day and all of the night are for rockin'. As an Artist, if you're awake, you're writing a song, rehearsing, recording in the studio or performing live. If you're in the Business Track, you're managing several Artists, serving as Booking Agent, A&R person, Publisher, Publicist, Concert Promoter-maybe even a Studio Musician, Background Singer or Producer if you've got the skills. Those in the Technical Track make it all go ‘round, serving as Front of House Engineers, Recording Engineers, Lighting Designers, Videographers and Studio Managers. You'll study Songwriting, Recording, Performing, Artist Management, how to run a Record Company (or start your own), Marketing, and the latest digital recording techniques. It's the real School of Rock!
$300,000.00 worth of the latest recording equipment, microphones and guitar amps at your fingertips. "Homework" that involves your personal engineer and a record button. Contemplating chord progressions and harmonies or contract clauses and marketing strategies. Opportunities to scrutinize every word of a contract. Adding hands-on experience to your resume.
Not only does your final fit in a CD jewel box, but you leave with a backpack full of original recordings, a first-rate press kit and resume, and the know-how to get a recording contract or land a cool job in the music business.
One Student's Experience...
"Being at the CMC has been an incredible experience. Studios and boardrooms are the classrooms, and application is the only objective. Producing shows every week, engineering in production studios, spending the semester on an Island, and networking with people in the music industry-what better way to earn 16 credits?!?
