Our focus

This program is composed of three foundations centered around three principal themes. The first foundation focuses on music as a language, its interpretation, and composition. These courses are heavily concentrated in the first six semesters. The second foundation is Music Production. This is introduced in the third semester and continues until the thesis. The third foundation focuses on project management and management skills. Together, these three areas allow our students to dominate music as an art form, capture it in a finished product of the highest quality, and create an innovative, sustainable, and successful project. Every course in the program has a practical methodology, structured around projects and constant practice. This methodology ensures that technical knowledge is integrated with management skills implemented through teamwork. Recognizing the importance of technology in music production and the incredible speed with which this technology evolves, our music program has made it a goal to stay at the forefront of music and sound technology, so that our students are familiar with the tools and techniques that are being used in the most advanced music production facilities in the world. This knowledge will give them a competitive advantage, increasing their employment opportunities and the quality of their work.
