FAQ

What are the materials required for my application?

When you apply for certain programs, you’ll be asked to submit links to your creative work. The Flagship and Online Music Production Programs require 3 music tracks at least 2 minutes in length. Music submissions are not required for the Online Music Production Intro Course. The Vocal Artist Program requires 2 audition-style videos of you performing original music or a cover. There are no music or video requirements for the Music Business Program.

Do I need previous training?

You don’t need previous training, but we strongly recommend that students have some experience in the field to which they are applying. For example, if you are applying for the Flagship Music Production Program, we require you to submit some completed music 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?

Once we receive your application, an Admissions Advisor will reach out to schedule your qualifying interview. You can do the interview either on Zoom or in-person. Once you pass the interview, you’ll need to complete an assignment and describe your career path and goals. Within 14 days of completing this assignment, you’ll find out if you’ve been accepted. If you’re not accepted, 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 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, Los Angeles Advanced Music Production Program, Los Angeles Vocal Artist Program, and Los Angeles Music Business Program 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
