Students Coming Together
Over the years we have trained thousands of musicians, DJs, producers, and entrepreneurs from all walks of life. Our training programs are perfect for those who want to gain real world experience and valuable skills without spending an arm and a leg.
Students include hobbyists, part-time music makers, and working professionals of all ages and interests. Where else will you find a bunch of rockers, house heads, and backpackers all coming together to learn, collaborate, and network?
Chicago's Music Hub
MIW is widely recognized as a major hub of connectivity for the local music scene. We love supporting local artists, labels, and promoters. We work hard to make the Chicago area music scene stronger every day by offering affordable training, counseling, support, and tons of free events for the public.
Award Winning Faculty and Staff
Our award winning faculty and staff is comprised of over (40) industry experts including Grammy Award winning artists, engineers, and producers, international DJs, college professors, record label executives, best selling authors, entertainment lawyers, marketing and technology gurus, artist development specialists, and much more.
Our state-of-the-art facility is both a school and a world class recording studio used by major label artists as well as local bands. These are the same studios used by Columbia College and DePaul University to teach their recording and production programs.
One of the coolest things about this facility is the co-mingling and networking opportunities that take place every day as students, instructors, staff, and studio clients all get to know each other in this shared commercial and academic space. The end result is a communal environment where professionals and students work together to reach their common goals of making better music.
Our cutting edge training formula provides a perfect blend of structured academic programming and project based hands-on training. This combination of activity and academics provides the perfect backdrop for one of the best educational opportunities offered anywhere in the country.
