Music

General

Program Description

Music is life.

That's all you really need to know. If you don't believe it, the NWC Music Program will set you straight. All day long, you'll sing, play, mix it up in large and small ensembles, learn the foundations and practice an instrument or two (and yes, all musicians are required to learn piano, no matter what their music specialty is).

Your new home will be in an individual practice room, a high-tech music software lab, or a digital recording studio. You'll get to work with guest artists and attend a million (or so) concerts. Plus log some road time on performance tours.

Music. Is there anything else?
