给未来音乐专业学生的信

凯西·布洛克-体育电竞盘app学校

来自音乐/舞蹈系主任凯西·布洛克

体育电竞盘app是一所习惯于开拓新天地的学校. 也许没有什么地方比体育电竞盘app的音乐节目更能体现这一点了.

电竞app's music program is current, it is innovative, and perhaps most of all, it is unique. Much of this is because it is inhabited by a 教师 of working music professionals with real-world experience in the music industry and performance arena. 他们带来了他们的联系人, 专业知识, 和经验进入课堂, as well as creating inventive classes that offer unusual opportunities for students. When you have teachers who have written songs for icons like Diana Ross, or worked with legends such as Leonard Bernstein and Mislav Rostropovich, 多是可能的.

此外,体育电竞盘app有 几个性能集合体. 在春天, 音乐系有一次学生乐队比赛, 重奏曲, etc -- one or two groups go to Morningstar Recording Studio and record a demo, 与格莱美获奖工程师格伦·巴雷特合作. Other students are invited to come along for the trip for the experience. 这个事件发生在 艺术节, a week devoted to the arts, where many workshops and events are available to 所有的学生.

体育电竞盘app的课程一直在发展, as we often respond to the needs and desires expressed by the current student body. The fact is, you’d have to be in college to find many of the music courses that we offer at 电竞app. And even colleges may not offer them, as they are wholly unique and created by 电竞app teachers. Here is just a sampling of what we offer throughout the year (some of these classes may rotate from year to year):

在这门课上, 体育电竞盘app将深入探讨音乐产业的现状, 它是如何产生和运作的, 以及它降落的地方. This class is all about how the current recording and touring artist shapes and creates a career.
