Music Innovation Summer Institute

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Music as a career, technology, creative and cultural art, and business is going through massive change. How can musicians, songwriters, and others in related creative and technological careers thrive in this changing environment? How will these industries change in the future? How can we design careers, companies, skills, and connections to thrive in Music from here to 2020?

Herb Alpert School of Music (HASoM) is in the unique position, especially with its new UCLA Center for Music Innovation, to give students from many schools and backgrounds a boost into the modern music environment and beyond.

We have designed an 8-unit combination of courses and professional/industry guests and connections to help bring music, technology, and innovation under the same roof for students desiring to focus on both music and technology in their future and current professional lives.

REGISTRATION

APPLICATION PROCESS
This program is open to undergraduate students, graduate students, and working professionals over the age of 18. This program is first-come, first-served.


REGISTER ONLINE
Registration is conveniently done online here.

In order to guarantee a spot in the program, a valid payment of the non-refundable deposit ($400 for international students; $150 for all others) is required if registering prior to the May 1 payment deadline. After the payment deadline, a full payment of all fees including the non-refundable deposit but excluding any applicable document and IEI fees is required for registration.

Registration is not complete until the required payment is made. Those who are not prepared to pay can submit their registration form and retrieve registration at another time to make payment.

This deposit is not refundable under any circumstances including, but not limited to, drop for non-payment and withdrawal, even if you withdraw from the program before it begins. If you withdraw, this deposit will appear as processing fee charge on your BruinBill account. If the program is full, you will not be prompted to make payment. When your application is accepted from the wait list, you will be notified by email with instructions for methods of payment.

If applicable, the document and IEI fees must be paid on MyUCLA after registration. For more information, please refer to FEES AND PAYMENT in the left column.
