Minors: Music, Theatre
Lyndon’s Music and Performing Arts degree program gives students the opportunity to translate their love of music into a personally meaningful career that can provide a financially stable and fascinating life. With our new state-of-the-art recording studio and brand new record label, students in this major can record their own albums, and then listen to their music on Lyndon’s very own radio station, WWLR.
The program equips students to meet the demands of the contemporary industry through creative and supportive use of curriculum, technology, and industry partnerships. Students are mentored in all areas of the industry, from professional comportment and business skills to technical problem solving.
Concentrations in music, business, production, or digital media provide students with a foundation for success in a variety of career fields both in and outside of the recording studio. Students become familiar with such industry concerns as contract negotiations, legal issues, and copywriting.
To provide options for students seeking music business careers, the M.B.I. program has added three new two-year programs. These degrees, which focus primarily on professional study and career preparation, are Audio Production, Music and Self-Promotion, and Music Industry Management. They operate as both a stand-alone degree option for students interested in a two-year program, or as a way to augment a number of four-year programs.
The Audio Production program is aimed at students interested in recording technologies and live sound production. Graduates will be qualified to work as sound engineering technicians, audio and video equipment technicians, broadcast technicians, or technical directors or managers.
The Associate of Science in Music and Self-Promotion provides students with management and marketing training to promote their own careers as performers or recording artists. Although this program includes some music training, it does not focus on music performance and theory courses.
The program in Music Industry Management is for students interested in artist, event, or venue management. This program is for anyone seeking a career as a meeting, convention or event planner, or as an agent or business manager of an artist, performer or athlete.
