Music isn’t just about sound. It’s about passion and commitment to an art form that can evoke deep memories and feelings and transport people to different locations and times.
The Music Industry Arts Program at Fanshawe College was the first school of its kind in Canada, and one of the first 3 in the world , to train young people for careers in the contemporary music industry.
It was started in 1970 as Creative Electronics by former Radio Caroline DJ Tom Lodge, but when the college demanded that Creative Electronics become a career program, he had the students build a recording studio, gathered music industry executives for an advisory group and changed the name of the program to Music Industry Arts.
The program has been the starting point for hundreds of the world’s top recording engineers, record producers, live performers, sound editors and entertainment industry executives.
The program is highly competitive with only about 115 students being accepted out of 800 applications every year. Students in the MIA program are also eligible for membership in a Student Section of the Audio Engineering Society.
If you’re ready to work in the most modern recording facility in any school in Canada, the Music Industry Arts program at Fanshawe will fine-tune your skills into a rewarding career.
MIA provides the basics in sound and business and evolves a person into someone who’ll be able to work in many different areas of industry. Students who are really passionate about music field should definitely choose this program as it’ll open millions of opportunities in the future
