• Track 1: Music Lab Open Lab

Orientation, Intro to Music Lab: All Music Lab students begin here with our only two required courses, which will introduce the student to Music Lab facilities and rules, as well as provide the foundation for the Audio Production classes.

Level System - Starting with Level C, students will learn the basics of Audio Production (using Logic X software) and Music Theory. Upon completion of all Level C classes, 2 extra credits, and the Level B Exam, students will graduate to Level B and have access to more advanced classes and equipment.

Audio Production: Designed to familiarize students with digital recording and mixing via digital audio workstations (Logic Pro & Pro Tools), waveform theory, auditory synthesis, composition, professional audio equipment, and recording technique in an interactive setting.

Music Theory: Offered at 2 levels, these classes will focus on ear training, chords, scales and arranging.

Music Business: Covers topics such as copyright, marketing, promotion, booking, careers in the music industry, and case studies.


• Track 2: Music Lab XPERIENCE

The Music Lab XPERIENCE (MLX) is an opportunity to experience Music Lab at a higher level, for students who have completed Track 1 and would like to do more.

MLX offers a small group of Music Lab students a high level interactive educational experience. Based on a cohort model, a small group of students will share experiences in music composition, performance, recording and business over multiple semesters. The Music Lab team will provide special workshops, masterclasses, and project based activities with professional guest artists and mentors focusing on composing, songwriting, music theory, music production, recording arts and music and entertainment business.

The MLX team will meet at the Music Lab one day a week for 2 hours. MLX students will also enjoy all privileges of Open Lab, allowing them full access to Music Lab throughout the semester.

Students interested in the Spring 2014 semester should apply by December 1, 2013. Auditions and interviews will take place in December, and the program will begin the first full week of January and run for 20 weeks.

Cost per student is $12.50 per session ($250 per semester). Current Music Lab students who have already paid their semester tuition of $50 may deduct that from the cost of MLX.
