Many of our classes take place at the Sherwood Community Music School, where non-credit music instruction for all ages is provided.
This intensive, weeklong J-Term course offers singers, songwriters, rappers, producers and instrumentalists the opportunity to earn academic credit while working in close collaboration with music business and sound engineering faculty and guest artists/producers. You’ll form a band or performance project, create, record and produce your music in a studio setting, and perform your work on stage.
