We Design the Future of Music

We Design the Future of Music

We’re a different kind of music school. We teach our students to master today’s latest music technologies, and give them the tools to design the future of how we create and experience music.

Music Tech is Different Here

Students who are passionate musicians that are also interested in engineering, robotics, computing, and science, can feel like they have to choose one interest over the other in their academic life. Our students were excited to find a major that engages their artistic and technical sides in equal measure.
