    What Will I Study?

    The Contemporary Music Center (CMC) offers three tracks: artist, business and technical.

    Artist (Track)

    The artist track is tailored to students considering careers as vocalists, musicians, songwriters, recording artists, performers and producers.

    Business (Track)

    The business track is designed for business, arts management, marketing, communications and related majors interested in possible careers as artist managers, agents, record company executives, music publishers, concert promoters and entertainment industry entrepreneurs.

    Technical (Track)

    The technical track prepares students for careers in live sound, concert lighting and studio recording. Students within each of the tracks receive instruction, experience and a uniquely Christ-centered perspective on creativity and the marketplace, while working together to and execute a week-long tour at the end of the semester.

    Each track includes coursework, labs, directed study and a practicum.
