New Program Announced: Digital Music Production

Metalworks Institute's New Program in Digital Music Production


In contemporary media, the creation and performance of music is changing as fast as the technology used to create it. The reach, scope and potential of new music has never been greater and the methods employed to develop it have never been more diverse.  In response to this unprecedented era in the entertainment industry, we’re offering a new, specialty Diploma program in Digital Music Production.

According to faculty member, Morgan Pottruff. “We’ve reached a point in time where the digital music production standards are incredibly high.  There is a new emerging class of super producers with top notch sound design skills to go with their songwriting and engineering prowess.  A program focusing on these career paths is an idea that time has come.  If you combine that with the history and credibility of Metalworks Studios and the school’s partnership with them, you have an outstanding educational choice for students.”

The Digital Music Production program emphasizes an acute understanding of sound design and electronic music principals.  Our new Digital Music Production program provides students an unrivaled platform to harness their inner artistic skills and showcase their art, while developing their career opportunities.  This program highlights the latest digital music software platforms including Ableton Live, Cubase, Logic, ProTools, and Reaktor.

“We are extremely pleased about what this new curriculum has to offer for students interested in a career in digital music” says Academics Director, Craig Titus.  “The music industry is ever-evolving and digital recording technologies are revolutionizing how independent producers are creating and recording music.  Our Digital Music Production program offers students extensive insight and the practical skills necessary to create their own music using the latest digital recording technologies available.”

Classes Begin: January 2014

Our Institute offers Digital Music Production as a one year diploma program, which is an approved vocational program under the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005.
