London is Canada's first city to receive this designation. The Music Industry Arts program is a creative and practical environment that allows students to discover and develop the artistic, technical and business skills that will prepare them to compete in today's evolving music and entertainment industry. The program approach is intensively hands-on, with professional recording, performance and lab facilities exclusively dedicated to student use. Course content is varied and equally balanced between artist development and technical skills which accentuates experiential learning within the program. Course curricula is wide by design and includes: artist development, music publishing, entertainment law, copyright, sales and promotion, music theory, ear training, music writing and arranging, creative audio production techniques, functions of digital and analog consoles, audio recording/mixing, studio operation, design and management, audio for picture, as well as live audio production. Computer literacy, audio and editing techniques relevant to the disciplines of music creation and audio post-production are offered through theory and practical applications. Collaborative projects utilizing other media-based programs within the college are also encouraged on a regular basis. Due to the academic rigor required in the Music Industry Arts program, applicants applying directly to this program from secondary school without additional post-secondary education, are encouraged to consider applying to the Pre-Media preparatory program.
