Beyond the Studio

What’s in your professional toolkit?

At NEC, you’ll strengthen your music with skills outside of music. In Community Performances & Partnerships, you’ll pitch programming and perform for diverse audiences. In Entrepreneurial Musicianship you’ll make new ventures happen, start to finish. And in Liberal Arts you’ll sharpen the intellectual and communications skills artists need to go farther.
