For the upcoming year, the MI sponsored classes (taught exclusively by MI’s world-class faculty) will nearly triple to 14 different course offerings, up from 2009-10’s highly successful 5 course series. Additionally, MI will be the Museum’s sole Education Class sponsor for the entire month of April, with seven courses running throughout the month.
The MI class topics range from Beat Making and Sampling, Writing and Mixing Music for Television, Making Money in the Music Business, Pop Lyric Writing Workshops, and much more. MI is pleased to continue its partnership as a major sponsor of The Grammy Museum (since it’s inception in 2008).
