Advanced Studio Learning seeks working with individuals who are serious and passionate toward achieving their life goal in the music, entertainment, and technical industries.  Previous experience or training is not a requirement, however it is helpful that applicants have some basic experience with music production, computers, or playing a musical instrument in order to get the most out of your training.  One must have very solid goals in order to enroll.  In other words, you must be serious from the start.

While you may apply online, you will be contacted by a member of our enrollment department to schedule an interview.  You must attend an interview either in person or by digital means in order to complete enrollment.

Advanced Studio Learning programs are fast paced and require you to become immersed in its content.  You will be given assignment and projects of which strict scheduling and deadlines are enforced.  All attendees will openly present their projects and music in the presence of teachers and other attendees comfortably and consistently.  While attendees in most cases will be required to have a good understanding of the English language for the functionality of reading and writing, there will be some workshops that will be delivered in Spanish, French, and several other African languages in the near future.  Those workshops will be announced as such when the time comes.
