Student Testimony

“Music Industry Training is just a fascinating class. Why? Well, I am constantly learning how the top artists around the world produce such amazing content. You name it, Bad Bunny, Drake, Taylor Swift, we study the process it takes for these geniuses to become successful performers. It's amazing to see all the preparations needed, from creating riders (backstage contracts) to setting up PA systems and subwoofers. From the beginning, we were welcomed into this highly respected industry with open arms. On a daily basis we are working with music industry standard equipment. Some may say we are the glue to our school dances with backstage/all access passes, we make the fun possible. We are becoming leaders and at the same time understanding why music can be so entertaining. Did you know that we are the first ever school to offer this program in America? I am so proud and honored to be one of the first in this family. Working together, side by side we are conquering waters where girls have never imagined to cross.”
