Today’s new media scene is bigger than ever, and opportunities for positively influencing our culture abound. Composers gifted in writing music for new media are needed for work in film, web series and video games. Streaming services are regularly creating their own shows as well, which means the television market has also exploded. Producers are looking for composers who are reliable and well-equipped in terms of their craft and familiarity with industry-standard technology. Through the Conservatory of Music’s innovative concentration in new media — a partnership with the School of Cinema and Media Arts — you’ll be equipped to do just that, and impact the world for Christ through a career in composing for new media.

Have you ever heard someone say, ‘It doesn’t matter what you know, but who you know’? They are partially right —we often forget that connections are vitally important to success in the business of music. But when you make that all-important connection with someone you want to collaborate with, if you aren’t prepared with the necessary skills, you’re likely to miss out on an opportunity. This degree prepares you in both ways, so that upon graduation you will have gained in both areas: the ‘what’ and the ‘who.”
