An innovative approach to education
Indie College 101 was founded upon the vision of making music industry education more available, even if you’re a professional with a full time commitment to work and family. With 40+ years of experience, we continue to focus on meeting the needs of musical learners. We have identified the characteristics of our learners as differing from the classic 18-22 year-old college students; through areas such as the learner’s need to know, self-concept, experience, readiness to learn, orientation to learning and motivation. These characteristics influence the instructional design process – shifting our framework from content-driven to context-driven and reinforcing relevant application to the real world.
Developed by faculty who are practitioners in their field, our online curriculum integrates academic theory, lifelong learning and professional practice – and is designed to support the needs of independent artists. We strive to help our students develop relevant skills that can be easily applied to their current and future experiences.
Our convenient classes, offered online, make learning the music business a real option for working indie artists. Access your class online, study on your own schedule and earn your certificate.
