WHY CHOOSE SEGUE 61
The music industry largely functions behind closed doors. It has to. If the industry didn’t, it’d be inundated with a deluge of the unskilled and untalented convinced that they’re the next big thing. 

Segue 61 serves both the industry and young talents trying to enter into a music profession with classes instructed by the industry leaders and hit-makers themselves.

You not only work on recording and performing music but also being a successful musician. You also learn about today's music business on the front lines of that industry while developing as professionals.

MULTI-DISCIPLINARY SKILLS
