Major Studies

1. Lessons

Initially, small classes consolidate fundamental, style-independent composition and music production skills, then one-on-one lessons encourage students to develop their individual style;

2. Music Production

Develops knowledge, analytical & listening skills to convert musical ideas into sound.

3. Digital Technology

Develops technical knowledge & skills with music production software tools, with weekly presentations on a range of technical, creative & professional issues.


In a small group setting, teamwork skills of collaboration and communication are developed as individual performance is focused on awareness, preparation and commitment to common goals. Production ensembles provide basic to professional options with live performance or recording outcomes.
