Do I need previous training?
You don’t need previous training, but we strongly recommend that students have some experience in the field which they are applying to. For example, if you are applying for the music production program, you should have one or two produced tracks.
How good does my music have to be?
We review your music sample to understand your ability and experience. We consider your potential, not just your current skill level. We’re looking for people who are self-driven, creative, and passionate about creating a career in music.
I submitted my application. Now what?
Within 7 days of receiving your application our admissions coordinator will reach out to schedule your qualifying interview. You can do the interview either on Skype or in person. Once you pass the interview, you’ll need to complete a self-evaluation and describe your career path/goals. Within 90 days of the start date, you’ll find out if you’ve been accepted. If not, you can try again after 3-6 months.
I uploaded everything and paid my fees & deposit. Am I guaranteed a spot?
Not necessarily. Space is limited, so we need to award seats based on ability and potential. The interview and the assessments help us see who’s a good fit for the limited spaces.
How hard are the classes?
The immersive programs move at a rapid pace. You’ll be expected to deliver your projects and assignments according to strict deadlines- just like in the real world. You should be comfortable presenting your music and/or assignments to classmates and teachers. Classroom participation requires conversational English and basic math skills. Assignments and projects require a functional level of English reading, writing, and comprehension.
Can international students apply for a student visa?
Yes. We are authorized to admit the F-1 Student Visa for international students accepted into all our on-campus Los Angeles Programs. Online programs are not eligible. Our Admissions Department will help non-U.S. citizens with the process of obtaining an F-1 Student Visa.
What programs are eligible for GI Bill® benefits?
Currently, our Los Angeles Music Production Program, Advanced Music Production Program: Los Angeles, Vocal Artist Program: Los Angeles, and Music Business Program: Los Angeles are eligible for GI Bill® benefits. We do, however, offer a 20 percent discount to our Online Music Production Program for veterans. For more information contact our admissions department
