As technology continues to advance, the way we create, record, perform, listen, learn and experience music is ever changing, and more accessible than ever before. Our students are empowered to approach music in a fresh new way, and are encouraged to challenge themselves through practice and development, to be ‘the next wave’ (nxwav) of electronic music professionals.
