TAUGHT BY INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS

We respect faculty who work in the music industry and can bring their professional experience into the class room.  Faculty will teach, guide, inspire and mentor you to find your path, make your mark in today's industry.


DESIGN YOUR OWN LIFE

You can choose to study a campus-based program, a hybrid, or entirely online. The choice is yours.  The campus in Detroit is purpose built with recording spaces, a live performance venue, classrooms, and a student workspace.  If you choose to study online, you will have access to our virtual learning environment and our curriculum that is design to help you succeed.  You will be able to study anytime - anyplace.  Or you can choose a hybrid!


MUSIC INDUSTRY CONNECTION

Networking, internships, work-experience and masterclasses, run through DIME's Ethos like the melody in a song!  Past guests include: George Clinton, Paulo Nutini, Usher, Michael Bolton, Alessia Cara, Nick Cannon, Ben Lovett (Mumford & Sons), tour managers, radio pluggers, business lawyers and basketball teams.  Each semester, faculty and team members invite professionals into the masterclass series and into lessons, so you can learn from people who are currently in the industry.  This is how you make connections and increase your network.
